If I'm correct, you are using Vista Home (Basic or Premium), which does not
include such useful features that it should.
You do need to reboot the computer once you have selected to disable UAC. If
that still doesn't work, go to Run, type in 'regedit' and look for the
Once you have that key (or folder, if you want to call it that) open, find
the DWORD value, 'EnableULA' and set it to zero (0). If that still doesn't
work, find 'ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin' and set that to zero as well. Reboot
your computer and UAC should be off. If not, I don't know what to tell you.
Tell me if it works, and if not, how you fixed it if at all. Thank you.
