"User account control - Windows needs your permission to continue"

Is it possible - if so, how - to disable the boxes asking to verify
running a program or do administrative tasks and let Vista do the
tricks without confirmation?

Possible, certainly. Easy, even. Just how wise doing so is, however,
depends entirely upon how skillful and security-aware the user is, and
what other security mechanisms are in place.

How to use User Account Control (UAC) in Windows Vista

In particular, if you need to disable to run an application, it would
be far better to replace that intentionally (It could have been designed
properly, had the developers wanted or known how to do so.) non-secure
application with one that's actually designed for Vista, particularly if
it's something that used frequently, or for extended (more than a few
minutes) periods of time.

Hello Pekka,

You can elevate the privilege level of administrator accounts so that
they are no longer asked by UAC for permission. This tutorial will show
you how to. This way the Standard accounts are still asked by UAC.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
