I beleive you are asking how to turn off the uac control popup etc if so go
to control panel>double click user accounts and there you will be able to
turn uac on and off after you disable it will ask you to reboot. And the same
applies if you wish to turn on again.
Hope this helps let me know.

Are you talking about UAC prompts? If so, upgrade to Vista-compatible
software.

You did check your software for Vista compatibility before upgrading, didn't
you?

be very careful when turning off UAC
A lot of programs will not install correctly if you turn this function off.
You might find you will get error msgs when a program starts up.
Many programs are built for Vista with the UAC coded into it so it will load
correctly.

If you decide to turn it off you can use TweakUAC.
This turns off the UAC and will also put it in silent mode for the limited
user so the admin user will not see those alerts but the limited user will
still see them.
But before when installing a new program you need to go back to the program
and turn on UAC then reboot.
Then you can install the program.

Where did you get the information that prior to installing a new program you
need to use TweakUAC to turn UAC on and reboot?

no, I did not say that
I said if you "use" TweakUAC to put the UAC in silent mode you "can" use
TweakUAC to put back the UAC.
Using this tool is a bit easier than going into Control Panel and finding
where to put it back on.

There is no law that says you need to only use this tool. This utility is
just easier to use than going into the Control Panel and turning off or on
the UAC

and because i test software for companies on Vista I found that with the UAC
off, a lot of sofware doesn't load properly without the UAC on.
If you have it off and then turn it on- regardless if you use TweakUAC or
manually turn it off- when you turn it on you should reboot to clear out the
memory so you do not run into any problems.

I have yey to ever encounter this problem. Turning UAC of is a matter of habit
for the past 8 months on every VISTA PC I encounter... there have been NO
negative responses what-so-ever.

I have not had a problem installing with UAC on, or off...
It's when I change state after installation that causes the problems. Some
programs, when installed, seem to remember UAC settings and information from
the installation process, then cause trouble if UAC doesn't match
installation settings when run.

Example:
Turn off UAC.
Install Word with UAC turned off.
Run Word.
Now, turn UAC on, then reboot.
Now, try Word again.

Same with Flash Player, Real Player, some AVs, etc. It's problematic if
you are going back and forth.

Best solution:
Choose whether you want it on or not and leave it.

Try installing ProSeries 2008 with UAC off :<(
All kinds of unexplained error messages, turn UAC on and it will install
without a hitch.
BTW, this is not your average user software that everyone must have, $4,099
but none the less with UAC off it can and WILL cause you unexplained errors
at some point down the road.

as i said, it depends on the product you are installing, so why take the
chance, just keep it on until you install a program then you can always take
it off again.
I just use it as a rule of thumb because you do not know which program is
going to have a problem.
I installed Greeting Cards Factory Premier 7 for a client with UAC off
Well it installed just fine until I tried to open it.
Once opening it came up with all kinds of error msgs.

Uninstalled it- rebooted
I put UAC back on
reinstalled the software and now it purrs like a kitten
That is why i install with UAC on because I really do not know what is going
to heppen.
Why go through torture once it installs and find out the reason for it was
turning UAC off.

After I installed it again I called Tech support for this software and the
tech told me UAC has to be on because they code it for UAC. No where in the
manual does it say this and the average user would have no idea what was
going on.

ProSeries 2008...... It's a lot of things...

I just picked the one that best joined hands with the faults ('features') in VISTA
which bother me the most.

Have been reading through the thread looking for a solution to the UAC alert
popup that occurs at every logon - most annoying.
I went to the link and applied the value to 'ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin' via
Regedit and upon reboot - still the error message.

I'm using Vista Business but would have thought that there would be no
difference in that setting.

Any further ideas?
