Vista 64 ultimate.

The administrator permissions popups.

They are killing me, I searched and couldn't find any offhand.


Someone help me out here.

Control panel, click continue on the message, user accounts, click again most likely, find your account, click 'turn user account control on or off', click that message again. click other stuff if you need to, save all work, reboot.

Yep: turn off the "most significant advance" in security in Vista.

There's got to be a better way to do this. UAC is ****.

In addition to DanFraser's suggestion, UAC can also be disabled via the System Configuration Utility (Start | Run | Type msconfig, and click OK | "Tools" tab | Scroll down to and highlight Disable UAC | Click the "Launch" button (which runs the following command)...
Code:
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
...then click OK, and reboot. If need be it can be re-enabled by highlighting Enable UAC, again via the SCU.

UAC was Vista's whole secure advantage over XP. When you disable it XP ends up being slightly more secure. That may change with the next SP though.
