Disable User Account Protection

How to Disable User Account Protection in Windows Vista

Hey Vista Lovers,

If you are anything like me, then you hate the ever annoying User Account Protection.

Luckily it is very easy to disable.

Simply run the following command:

%windir%\System32\.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

For user account protection to be fully disabled you must first reboot your computer after running the above command.

Enjoy,

Will
