No one can tell for sure. But I can say that UAC is required by windows, so don’t try to get rid of it, just disable it if you feel annoyed with a few programs(or all) which require admin privileges.

As we know, most admins should be enabled in Windows XP and Vista, and users who don’t have admin privilege cannot change the setting or launch any application which is set as administrator. That’s why we need UAC.

But what time do you want to disable it? when you play games? Launch media players? Maybe yes, but if you are an average user like me, I think you will never need to edit registry or system files without an administrator password. So here are some steps to disable UAC without a password.

The first step is to kill process uac.exe, which will enter your administrator privilege when you launch an application or try to change some system settings. To do this, open the task manager by a tap on Ctrl+Shift+Esc and go to the “Process” tab, find all occurrences of uac.exe in the processes list and end them all:

The second step is trickier than the first one, but if you have finished the previous one well, just be patient with this one too. It’s hard for me to make a guide about where exactly we need to change it in the registry as every computer uses a different path to save its registry setting(including XP and Vista), so I’ll let you figure it out by yourself. After all, the blank space of every registry is the same

Once you find it and enter from the menu ‘View’ >> ‘Advanced Mode’, just check the policy named “Local Policies” then scroll down to “User Rights Assignment”, if there are any subkeys that start with “SeDeny…” they should be all which UAC protects your system from changing or launching files.(For example, I have 3 keys for now: SeShutdownPrivilege, SeChangeNotifyPrivilege and SeImpersonatePrivilege)

Just open the key you want to change(I take a shutdown privilege as an example) then click ‘Advanced’, check the boxes on both “SeDeny log on locally” and “SeDeny insert and execute privileges”, finally press OK to save it. 

After all, just exit and restart your computer and you should get rid of UAC without a password! Whenever you need it again, just open the registry with regedit.exe or another tool that takes administrator permission where you disable it before.

Now I start to realize how much useful this article is for me when I was a newbie in Windows XP…and maybe it could help you too on your first steps to the world of Windows. If you have better methods to do this, or any question about the article, please left a reply. Thanks

Bypass UAC Prompts in Windows 10!


Disable User Account Control via Command Prompt I am going to post two different ways of doing this depending on your level of experience with computers and Windows in general. The first way is what I call the novice method since it involves commands that are simple enough for people new to windows to grasp and follow along with while still performing the task at hand. The second way is what I call the advanced method, as it involves editing the registry which is not exactly novice-friendly. That said if you are new to editing the registry or have never done so before do not attempt this one since it could seriously screw up your system and take it back to factory default settings! 1) Novice Method: This first method will enable you to disable UAC without administrator rights, but will require a boot into safe mode with command prompt access. (instructions follow for both Windows XP & Vista/Win 7)

Windows Vista, Windows 7 Type cmd in the search box, hit enter & type BCD edit /set {default} boot me policy legacy Hit Enter Enjoy a more relaxed computer 2) Advanced Method: This method will require you to edit the registry which can cause your system to become unstable at times. Again if this is not something you wish to do then check out the novice method above.

Novice Instructions: This method will require you to enter the registry editor and change a key that controls UAC. The same method is used in both XP & Vista/Win 7.  

If you are unfamiliar with the term “registry” it refers to where all of Windows settings are stored, it can be accessed via Start>>Run and entering reg editor by going to Control Panel –> System –> Advance –> click on “Environment Variables….” then under the “System variables” section double click on “Path” then hit the “New” button, type in %windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe, hit Ok then click OK again. After this has been done you will now need to log in as an administrator. Once you have done so open up your registry editor by going to Start –> Run and enter reg editor by going to Control Panel –> System –> Advanced —> click on “Environment Variables….” then under the “System variables” section double click on “Path” then hit the “New” button, type in %windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe, hit Ok then click OK again. After this has been done you will now need to log in as an administrator.

Once you have opened the registry editor navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies   Under this key create a new DWORD Value called “EnableLUA”, set the value of this to 0, and then restart your computer. After doing so UAC will be disabled without having to log in as an administrator or enable any external utilities.  

Advanced Instructions: This method involves editing items within the Windows Registry, which is a database that contains all of the settings for your operating system. If you are unfamiliar with editing it or making changes to it please do not attempt this method! You need elevated privileges in order for this to work, but you can do this by going to Start –> Run and entering cmd, right-click on cmd.exe, and select “Run as administrator”, you will get a UAC warning, go ahead and click yes. After doing so type BCD edit /set {default} boot me policy legacy then press Enter .   Note: While it is possible that you could change the value of this key to “AlwaysOff” in order to completely disable UAC regardless of being an admin or not we DO NOT recommend it! Since Windows Vista was released there have been many changes made to how User Account Control functions, especially with regards to software, install, if you wish for programs such as Java/Flash/Adobe/etc…to work properly when installing them then leave this key set to “Default”. 2) Free External Tools That Will Disable UAC Depending on how you feel about using external 3rd party tools to enable and disable certain Windows features then you can do so with one of these two programs. Both of these are completely free to use and don’t require any type of login or registration which is always a plus in my book!

Step 1: Download & install Expedia.   After installing run it once and select “Enable Full Control” then click on the “Apply Changes” button, you will get a warning that you’ve chosen to allow full control to all programs, go ahead and check “I accept the risk!” then hit OK. Now after doing so UAC is fully disabled for your entire computer! Note: If you wish to undo this change just launch  Expedia again, but untick the”Disable UAC” option and hit Apply Changes. Step 2: Download & install RegAlyzer   Now after installing run it once and select “Disable UAC”, then click on the “Apply Changes” button. After doing so UAC is fully disabled for your entire computer! NOTE: If you wish to undo this change just launch  RegAlyzer again, but untick the”Disable UAC” option and click apply changes. 3) Command Prompt For those of you who are more advanced users the PUSHD /E command can be used for temporarily disabling UAC, however, do keep in mind that this will require elevated privileges which means a prompt will appear asking you to enter an administrator password upon launching any type of program from the CMD.
