While it's not advisable to turn it off, if you are referring to the "User
Account Control" warning message, go to Control Panel, open User Accounts
and click the selection "Turn User Account Control on or off."

When are you getting it? In any event, I would not recommend you turn off
UAC (User account control). Better is to learn about what it is and does,
and learn how to work with it. UAC gives you control, over what wants to
run on your system with admin rights. You want that control.

Here are some informational links.

I'm so glad I found this thread! The admin control permission has been
driving me crazy too! I have an at-home PC with no other users. So I surely
do not need it. Thanks!

Yes you do need it. It has nothing to do with how many user accounts there
are. I strongly recommend you do not turn off UAC. Without UAC any program
can run without your knowledge with admin privileges and do what it wants.
Also you loose Internet Explorer's protected mode. Instead learn about UAC
and how to work with it.

The problem with turning off this piece of garbage-ware is that it breaks
other things.

I agree with Rock in this thread. Generally, I don't recommend turning it
off except temporarily if you are being repeated blocked from some action
and you are unable to figure your way around it. If you have an Internet
connection and you download files it offers an added layer of protection.
Granted, the user might simply ignore it but it's one more means of alerting
the user to a possible unauthorized activity on their system.

Thanks to all for clarifying the purpose of UAC. I now better understand the
risk I'm taking by turning it off. But I do hate the darn thing. And I have a
firewall and other protection, as well as dial up, which is less accessible
to intrusion than DSL. So for now I plan to live dangerously!
