You’ll probably find one of the most annoying features of Windows Vista was the User Account Control (UAC) that would keep popping up and asking permission for just about everything. Us, computer repairs Geeks certainly were not happy with that! The one in Windows 7 is a lot more manageable and today I’ll show you how to completely disable it, or at least make it more manageable.
So, what IS the function of the User Account Control? It is to inform you when a programme makes a change that the administrator is to give permission for. It’s basically a security feature that blocks malicious software from making key system changes on your computer without your permission.
To get started go to Start Getting Started Change UAC settings.
The UAC by default it is set to notify you when programmes try and make changes to the computer. While this is much less annoying than it was in Vista you can adjust it to a level YOU are more comfortable with and can even turn it off completely – meaning you will never get a notification.
This is a reasonable setting if you’re hesitant to turn it off completely it will notify you without dimming the desktop and stopping everything you’re doing just to find out more.
If you turn it off and are logged in as Administrator you will no longer be bothered with it at all. Users will be unable to make any changes that require Administrator permissions.
If you are a dedicated computer user who likes to make a lot of changes and tweaks to your system then you most certainly will like the fact that you can easily adjust the UAC settings – a lot easier than you could in Vista.
Please remember, you can always email or call Mobile Geeks computer repairs geeks if you have other questions.
