Improved UAC safeguards in Windows® 7
One of the USP of Windows 7 is the more flexible and less irritating User Account Control. Microsoft has reduced the actions that prompt you making it less annoying for the users. The software giant has made several changes, but the biggest change is the User Account Control “slider” setting which results in less annoyance and more security.
User Account Control safeguards your computer against hackers and protects it against malicious software. The tool prompts the user for the permission, if any application wants to make any changes to your computer. UAC is more flexible in Windows 7 than in Windows Vista. Now, every task doesn't require your consent in Windows 7, and if you have administrator privileges, you can easily fine tune to UAC's notification settings from the control panel.
There are now four customization settings for UAC:
1. Never notify (Less secure): The user is not notified when an application tries to install software or make changes to the PC. The user is not notified when they make changes to Windows settings or when programs try to do so.
2. Only notify me when programs try to make changes to my computer: The user is not notified when an application tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is not informed when they make changes to Windows settings. However, the user is notified when programs try to make changes to the computer, including Windows settings.
3. Always notify me: The user is always notified when an application tries to install software or make changes to the computer. Windows informs you when they make changes to Windows settings or when programs try to do so.
4. Always notify me and wait for my response (most secure): The user is notified when an application tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is also informed when they make changes to Windows settings or when programs try to do so.
Apart of that, we can configure User Account Control in four different ways to make it less irritating such as Disable UAC Entirely image, Auto – Accept UAC Prompts for Administrators Only image, Disable the Blackout screen and create Administrator Mode shortcuts without UAC Prompts image.
Disable UAC Entirely image: Windows 7 allows you to disable UAC but the problem is that this can make your system less secure. Disabling UAC is not recommended if you download and test a lots of software, but the user should be aware that now he/she has the option to disable UAC which you can do by clicking on Disable UAC the Easy Way and by Disable UAC from the Command Line.
Auto-Accept UAC Prompts for Administrators Only image: If you don’t want to disable UAC to keep your system secure and also don’t want the prompt to show up than this is the better option. You can disable the prompt from showing up in your administrator account. The setting can be adjusted to “Elevate without prompting” which prevents the prompt show up. This option is more secure than disabling User Account Control.
Disable the Blackout screen (Secure desktop) image: The secure desktop feature can be disabled but it will leave the prompts the way they are.
Create Administrator Mode Shortcuts Without UAC Prompts image: This feature is very useful if you need to open a particular administrator-mode application many times a day as it allows you to set up few shortcuts. Application can be launched using task scheduler and then telling the task scheduler will run the task.
