I want UAC off and full access to everything all the time.

So I have UAC off but still there seems to be access issues installing various programs, does the admin account vista creates when installing inferior to an Admin account you can create your self afterwards?

Is there a way to disable all these annoying security features as I really don't need them, for instance access to the %temp% folder when UAC is off...

Cheers

You could emable the Built-in Administrator and then copy your User account from your account to the Built-in Administrator account and then either disable or login as the Administrator instead and then none of the permissions will pop up all the time when installing software or just general use of your PC.

Up to you.

Or rename the built-in Administrator account to the account name that you desire (however, this username cannot exist and cannot have a user profile).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
