I beleive you are asking how to turn off the uac control popup etc if so go
to control panel>double click user accounts and there you will be able to
turn uac on and off after you disable it will ask you to reboot. And the same
applies if you wish to turn on again.
Hope this helps let me know.

Are you talking about UAC prompts? If so, upgrade to Vista-compatible
software.

You did check your software for Vista compatibility before upgrading, didn't
you?

be very careful when turning off UAC
A lot of programs will not install correctly if you turn this function off.
You might find you will get error msgs when a program starts up.
Many programs are built for Vista with the UAC coded into it so it will load
correctly.

If you decide to turn it off you can use TweakUAC.
This turns off the UAC and will also put it in silent mode for the limited
user so the admin user will not see those alerts but the limited user will
still see them.
But before when installing a new program you need to go back to the program
and turn on UAC then reboot.
Then you can install the program.

Where did you get the information that prior to installing a new program you
need to use TweakUAC to turn UAC on and reboot?

no, I did not say that
I said if you "use" TweakUAC to put the UAC in silent mode you "can" use
TweakUAC to put back the UAC.
Using this tool is a bit easier than going into Control Panel and finding
where to put it back on.

There is no law that says you need to only use this tool. This utility is
just easier to use than going into the Control Panel and turning off or on
the UAC

and because i test software for companies on Vista I found that with the UAC
off, a lot of sofware doesn't load properly without the UAC on.
If you have it off and then turn it on- regardless if you use TweakUAC or
manually turn it off- when you turn it on you should reboot to clear out the
memory so you do not run into any problems.

you were lucky, a lot were not
some antispyware software did not load correctly with uac off.
I had to uninstall, turn UAC back on- reboot- then installed and they loaded
fine.
Some users in other groups I belong to, had similar problems and was
corrected by turning UAC back on.
