Lately, I have trouble fixing problems that occurs on my Vista that includes the following: the search failed to initialize; UAC links not working; downloaded softwares failed to install, prompting me to ‘contact the system administrator’, or saying ‘the file is corrupted’ although I know it is not; etc. I searched for solutions on the internet but found nothing exactly what I’m looking for. Analyzing the problem, I’ve come to realize that it has something to do with my UAC. Disabling it would make sense in controlling nuisances that occurs relative to the above problems.
If you have the same problem like mine, follow the following steps:
1. Click Start then press Run.
2. Type msconfig, then click Ok.
3. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find “Disable user account control”. Click it.
4. Press the Launch button.
5. A cmd window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window. (note: You don’t have to type anything, just close it.)
6. Close msconfig.
7. Reboot your computer for changes to apply.
1. Open Registry Editor.
2. Navigate to the following registry key:
3. Locate the following (DWORD): EnableLUA and give it a value of 0.
4. Close Registry Editor.
5. Reboot computer for changes to apply.
