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 how to enable uac - 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. 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.

Tip

Using UAC in Windows Vista


Windows Vista has the built-in ability to automatically reduce the potential of security breaches in the system. It does that by automatically enabling a feature called User Account Control (or UAC for short). The UAC forces users that are part of the local administrators group to run like they were regular users with no administrative privileges.








Although UAC clearly improves the security on Windows Vista, under some scenarios you might want to disable it, for example when giving demos in front of an audience (demos that are not security related, for example). Some home users might be tempted to disable UAC because of the additional mouse clicking it brings into their system, however I urge them not to immediately do so, and try to get used to it instead.
Anyway, if required, you can disable UAC by using one of the following methods:
Method #1 - Using MSCONFIG
  1. Launch MSCONFIG by from the Run menu.
  2. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find "Disable UAC" . Click on that line.
    disable_uac_1.gif
  3. Press the Launch button.
  4. A CMD window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window.
  5. Close MSCONFIG. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.
You can re-enable UAC by selecting the "Enable UAC" line and then clicking on the Launch button.
*Recommended: Speed up Vista boot times by reducing the number of programs that load at startup. Control your Vista startup list with this Vista app
Method #2 - Using Regedit
  1. Open Registry Editor.
  2. In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
  3. Locate the following value (DWORD): EnableLUA and give it a value of 0.
    disable_uac_2.gif Note: As always, before making changes to your registry you should always make sure you have a valid backup. In cases where you're supposed to delete or modify keys or values from the registry it is possible to first export that key or value(s) to a .REG file before performing the changes.
  4. Close Registry Editor. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.
In order to re-enable UAC just change the above value to 1.
Method #3 - Using Group Policy This can be done via Local Group Policy or via Active Directory-based GPO, which is much more suited for large networks where one would like to disable UAC for many computers at once.
If using Local Group Policy you'll need to open the Group Policy Editor (Start > Run > gpedit.msc) from your Vista computer.
If using in AD-based GPO, open Group Policy Management Console (Start > Run > gpmc.msc) from a Vista computer that is a member of the domain. In the GPMC window, browse to the required GPO that is linked to the OU or domain where the Vista computers are located, then edit it.
  1. In the Group Policy Editor window, browse to Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options.
    disable_uac_gpo_1.gif
  2. In the right pane scroll to find the User Access Control policies (they're down at the bottom of the window). You need to configure the following policies:disable_uac_gpo_2.gif
  3. You'll need to reboot your computers.
Method #4 - Using Control Panel
  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Under User Account and Family settings click on the "Add or remove user account".
    disable_uac_3.gif
  3. Click on one of the user accounts, for example you can use the Guest account.
  4. Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.
    disable_uac_4.gif
  5. Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.
    disable_uac_5.gif
  6. In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.
    disable_uac_6.gif
  7. You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Do so when ready.
    disable_uac_7.gif
In order to re-enable UAC just select the above checkbox and reboot.

Most likely your UAC (User Account Control) is preventing you from running the program. You should receive a prompt asking for permission to run thr program unless you've inadvertenly given Vista control to block access to add on programs. It's possible to disable UAC (temporarily or permanantly) by doing the following Start/ControlPanel/Security/SecurityCenter click on "Other Security Settings" to turn off UAC. You should then be able to run the desire program (make sure u trust the program you're installing). You can always repeat the process to enable UAC after.

Vista not recognizing driver from usb g220


Try turning off the Vista security feature known as User Account Control (UAC).

Go into Control Panel/Users. Select your own account then click the link on the left "turn UAC on or off". Disable UAC then click Apply/OK.

Now try installing the driver again. If you still get the "digital signature" warning choose the option to "install anyway".

The driver should then load. You would be best advised to re-enable UAC after you have finished loading the driver.
