When you open Control Panel, just type “UAC”. The focus is in the Control Panel search box already.
The search result will bring up a link that takes you directly to the page in User Accounts where you can turn off the UAC prompts.
Typing other stuff like “prompt”, or “turn off UAC” or similar keywords will bring up the same link.

How to enable uac


User Account Control (UAC) can help you prevent unauthorized changes to your computer. It works by prompting you for permission when a task requires administrative rights, such as installing software or changing settings that affect other users.
We don't recommend turning User Account Control off. If you do turn it off, you should turn it back on as soon as possible.
  1. Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_47.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking User Accounts and Family Safety(or clicking User Accounts, if you are connected to a network domain), and then clicking User Accounts.
  2. Click Turn User Account Control on or off. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_41.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Select the Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer check box to turn on UAC, or clear the check box to turn off UAC, and then click OK.

Windows 7 Tip#4


Modify UAC

The User Account Control security feature was one of the most reviled additions to Windows Vista, with good reason -- its constant warning messages asking for permission to continue many operations drove users around the bend. UAC has been significantly improved in Windows 7 so that it's not as intrusive as in Vista, but you can still tweak it if you like.

Here's how to turn UAC on or off, and make it less or more intrusive than the default:

1. Go to the Control Panel --> User Accounts and Family Safety.

2. Click User Accounts, then click Change User Account Control settings.

3. From the screen that appears, use the slider to select the level of protection you want. Here are the four levels and what they mean:

Always notify me. Think of this as UAC Classic. It works like Vista's UAC: When you make changes to your system, when software is installed or when a program tries to make a change to your system, an annoying prompt appears.

Default -- Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer. This is, obviously, the default; make a change yourself and UAC leaves you alone. When a program makes a change, a prompt appears and your desktop goes dark, just like it does in Vista. Otherwise, UAC sits there silently.

Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer (do not dim my desktop). This setting is identical to the default setting, with one difference: It won't dim your desktop so that you only see the UAC prompt asking you to take action. This presents a slightly elevated security risk over the default setting, because theoretically a program could allow a malicious program to interfere with the UAC prompt.

Never notify me when: In this one, UAC is completely turned off. This is, of course, an insecure option and not recommended for most users.

After you make the selection, click OK. Depending on the selection you made, you may need to restart your system for it to take effect.

I cannot access my transcend Elite software as my computer says publisher unknown. What do I do?


This is what I researched on the Microsoft support page. It seems that you have a issue with what is called the UAC (User Account Control>
Here is the explanation: this is from the KB article.
Explaining the User Account Control (UAC) technology
User Account Control (UAC) was a new security-feature and technology introduced first in Windows Vista™ and later migrated and added to Windows® 7.

The way UAC works: When we execute a normal program, UAC first checks if that program has keywords like "setup", "install", "update" etc, using the UAC Installer Detection Technology (IDT) (If is a setup.exe then elevate). UAC also checks the programs manifest file for the "requireAdministrator" tag added in its manifest configuration, if that is found, UAC will then go to the next step. When UAC has confirmed the first step, UAC will check if that program is
blocked by policy or if the programs publisher is blocked, when UAC successfully confirms that it goes to the next step.

When UAC has confirmed the first two steps, it then checks if the publisher of that program is "Windows®" it's self, but in our case it isn't so UAC goes to the next step and checks for a regular publisher. If the publisher is verified (this means also that the program has a valid digital signature) then UAC will prompt with a gray background and gold shield icon: "The application is Authenticode signed and trusted by the local computer".

UAC in Windows® 7: UAC under Windows® 7 is basically the same, except that they done some "small" modifications. But, still the same rules apply in Windows® 7 as in Windows Vista™.

The modern programs under UAC restrictions
Modern applications/programs that run under UAC restrictions have their power to become "trusted"-apps. Programs like Google Chrome or other (e.g. Avast Antivirus, Mozilla FireFox or any other), are put into trusted directories (e.g. C:\Program Files\ and C:\Program Files (x86)\), and they are of course signed with a digital signature [For example: A signature from the VeriSign Time Stamping CA].

Please contact the manufacturer
You will need updated driver set for your External USB storage device usually found at the manufacturers site. You can disable the UAC but this is not recommended.
