Howdy respected My Digital Life Forums community members and staff! UAC is the worst thing in the Windows history and it isn't so easy to disable it on Windows 8 as it was on Windows 7 or Windows Vista. When you believe that you've disabled it by doing the same things you've done on Windows Vista or Windows 7 you are wrong! UAC is still running and it is getting really annoying when working on Windows 8. The salvation is here . Here is the solution: 1. Open "Run" (Windows + R or in the Metro UI menu), type "regedit" and hit enter. 2. Go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System". 3. On the right side find "EnableLUA" and change it to from 1 to 0. 4. Reboot your system and UAC is completely disabled. Warning: Metro Apps won't work after this (lmao I don't even use them). That's it after all .
