The main reasons for the existence of UAC problems in Windows 7 is infected system registry, malware and a corrupted OS. The misconfigured UAC level in the user account settings also causes certain issues. By default, the UAC level of Windows 7 is set on a safe level which notifies you only when the programs try to make changes to the computer settings.
Adjusting UAC Level in Windows 7
You can find the UAC by typing "UAC" in the search box provided in 'Start' menu. You can also get the UAC from the control panel. From the Control Panel click on the 'Action Center' which is available under 'System and Security'. Then pick the 'Change User Account Control' settings. Here you are allowed to set the level of the User Account Control by moving the slider to the proper level. There are four levels in Windows 7 UAC including the default level.
Certain malware have the ability to create several UAC issues by infecting or modifying the system files associated with the UAC. This could be prevented by removing all the malware from the system by using appropriate antivirus software. You should use registry cleaning software like RegCure to clean the system registry. In case of any damage to the OS, you must use the OS installation CD and the OS repair tools to resolve UAC issues.
