How to Change User Account Control (UAC) Notification Settings in Windows 7

When turned on, User Account Control helps prevent potentially harmful programs from making changes to your computer in Windows 7 by notifying and asking you for permission before letting the program run or install.You dont have this feature in Windows XP.
This tutorial will show you how to change the User Account Control (UAC) for when to be notified about changes to your computer.

Turning off UAC by setting it to the lowest bottom level will also disable Protected Mode in Internet Explorer.

Through User Accounts

1. Open the Control Panel (All Items View).

2. Click on the User Accounts icon.

3. Click on the Change User Account Control settings link. (See screenshot below)

4. If prompted by UAC, click on Yes to approve.

5. Adjust the slider to the level of protection of how much you want to be notified from UAC. (See screenshots below)

6. Click on OK when done.

7. If prompted by UAC, click on Yes to approve.

8. If you have just turned UAC off, then you will need to click on restart the computer, or manually restart the computer, to apply the changes. (See screenshot below)

Simply turning on UAC or changing the UAC level without turning it off will not require a restart.
