Come Windows 7, Microsoft has clearly understood (or rather made to understand by users) this issue and has acted. It’s a step in the right direction. Unlike Windows Vista where you can enable or disable UAC, in Windows 7 you can choose between one of four possible options.
The options are
1. Always Notify me – Typical to Windows Vista. Every system change is prompted with the background DIM.
2. Notify me when programs try to make changes to the computer – (DEFAULT) the changes you make are notified and will still notify when a program modifies the system settings with background DIM
3. Notify me when programs try to make changes to the computer (Do not DIM my desktoo) – as it implies, same as above but without trying to DIM the desktop (pre vista like messages)
4. Never Notify – Do not notify at all. Least secure.
To change from the defaults, click Start – Control Panel – User Accounts and Family Safety – User Accounts. Click User Account Control Settings and use the slider to choose from one of the above mentioned options.
