How to Turn Off User Account Control in Windows Vista
 
 
If you work on your computer half as much as I do and you run Windows Vista you have no doubt become a bit irritated by Vista’s User Account Control. User Account Control is the part of Vista that makes you OK what feels like each and every program that runs or installs to your system. Once you run Vista for any amount of time you will see these warnings such as “Windows needs your permission to continue” or “An unidentified program needs your permission to continue”.

User Account Control is a pretty good way to keep software from installing without your permission, but if it is driving you crazy and making your work day more difficult you can turn off User Account Control. Beware turning this feature off will make your computer less secure. That said if you still want to disable User Account Control follow the steps on the next page.

  • Click the start button
  • Click Control Panel
  • Look for the User Accounts icon and click it
  • Click the last link with the colored shield beside it that says “Turn User Account Control on or off”
  • Click continue on the next screen that says “Windows needs your permission to continue”
  • Click the “X” in the top right corner to close the screen

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
