Many advanced user are annoyed by Microsoft's new User Account Control (UAC), a new security component of Windows Vista. UAC enables users to perform common tasks as non-administrators, called standard users in Windows Vista, and as administrators without having to switch users, log off, or use Run As.

This Step-By-Step Guide will show how to prevent Administrators from being prompted by the UAC dialog, on Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Ultimate.

* Non-administrators will still retain the original User Account Control (UAC) configuration.

Click the Vista Start Orb.

Type secpol.msc + [Enter] into the Start Search textbox on the Start Menu.

Click the Continue button when the User Account Control dialog appears.

On the Local Security Policy window:

Select Local Policies > Security Options, from the Local Security Settings console tree.

In the Right Pane, scroll down to and Double-Click User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode.

Select Elevate without prompting, from the drop-down menu.

Click the OK button.

Close the Local Security Policy window.
