Re: UAC promts for password when logged in as admin - vista home basic
If you have one of the Home versions of Vista, the MSC components such as
GPEdit are not included in those versions.
You will need to make the needed change in the registry.
Go to Start and type: regedit.exe and in the results, right click
Regedit and select the Run As Administrator option.
In the registry editor, navigate to the following Key.
In the right side pane, you will see the following Value.
Double click this value and change the 1 (one) in the Value Data line to 2
(two). Click OK.
Press the F5 Key to refresh and exit the registry editor.
You should now get the normal 'confirm' dialog on the UAC prompts.
