Save your system from hackers with more flexible UAC in Windows® 7
Get more elastic and less irritating UAC in Windows 7 as compared to Vista.
Earlier, users faced several challenges when they needed to perform common actions that triggered a User Account Control Prompt.
One of the selling points of Windows 7 is the more flexible and less irritating User Account Control. Microsoft has reduced the actions that prompt you resulting it making less annoying for the users. Microsoft has done many changes but the biggest change is the User Account Control "slider" setting which results in less annoyance and more security.
User Account Control prevents your computer against hackers and defend it against malicious software. UAC asks the user for the permission, if any program wants to make any changes to your computer. UAC is more elastic in Windows 7 than in Windows Vista. Now every task don't require your consent in Windows 7 and if you have administrator privileges, from the control panel you can easily fine tune to UAC's notification settings.
We can adjust 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 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 we can setup few shortcuts. Application can be launched using task scheduler and then telling the task scheduler will run the task.
