How do I make UAD FOAD? It's off, but it keeps telling me so.

This has got to be the most stupid security device ever put in an OS.

I just don't see how some of you guys can keep comeing up with that crap
about being infected without UAC running.
I ran XP from the time it came on the market without UAC. Only had AVG free
edition , Adware Personal , Spybot and windows firewall.
Never had a problem. I those 5 years I have have had 2 viruses and, I
halfway expected them from where I was going on the net.
