Enable or Disable UAC from the Windows 7 / Vista Command Line
UAC is now considered as highly irritating and annoying feature in windows 7 / vista. Almost all the users want to get rid from it or they are thinking of switching back to XP. New schemes have now been introduced. But if the user disable UAC, then this action will make the security system least effective.
In order to disable UAC, user has to follow this command line: C:WindowsSystem32cmd.exe /k %windir%System32reg.exe and then add: HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem/v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f. To enable UAC, following command line should be taken into account: C:WindowsSystem32cmd.exe /k %windir%System32reg.exe and then add: HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem/v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f. After going through all this process, user has to restart the computer in order to notice that whether the particular change has taken place or not.
User can also enable or disable this feature from the use of control panel. As compared to the above method, users will surely find out that this scheme is far easier. To disable UAC on window vista, firstly user has to open up the Control Panel and typing “UAC” into the search box, the user will see a linkage “Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off”. Lastly, on the other screen, user has to unmark the “Use User Account Control (UAC)”. By selecting OK will immediately inactivate UAC on window vista.
But here in windows 7, the user does not have to entirely disable UAC if he wants to; the choice will totally depend upon him. In the start menu or Control Panel search box, user only has to type UAC. Moving the slider up and down will notify the user that how many times and how frequently, he / she want to get alerted. If the user moves the slider from the down to the bottom, then UAC gets disabled and vice versa.
