Turning User Account Control on or off
User Account Control (UAC) can help you prevent unauthorized changes to your computer. It works by prompting you for permission when a task requires administrative rights, such as installing software or changing settings that affect other users.
- Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel , clicking User Accounts and Family Safety (or clicking User Accounts, if you are connected to a network domain), and then clicking User Accounts.
- Click Turn User Account Control on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
