Tweak UAC in Vista

Quite a few users complained about the annoyance of Windows Vista’s User Access Control (UAC). Despite the increased security, it is quite a drag that with UAC switched on you have to confirm a Yes/No prompt on many operations you perform in Windows Vista. You have probably seen the Mac advertisement that specifically picked up this “feature”. If you decide that you do not need UAC it can be switched off, however, doing this manually involves a couple of steps and clicks. You will most probably prefer to use TweakUAC. It lets you quickly turn UAC (User Account Control) on or off, or make UAC operate in quiet mode.
