Keep User Account Control active, but get rid of annoying popups in Vista.
When UAC is enabled, software which is run "As Administrator" requires, by
default, that a pop-up prompt be responded to, and the Administrator password
required (or, if no password has been defined, just a click in the box).
Important thing: when you run Vista in normal user mode, shutting down UAC
implies that applications which need administrator credentials are denied to run
without an UAC warning, therefore you need to choose run as administrator and
supply the credentials. If you run Vista in Normal User mode I would not
recommend to use this setting for the simple fact that if an applications needs
administrator credentials it will probably fail to start without you knowing it.
It is possible to get rid of this annoying User Account Control pop-up, as
Start/Run and type secpol.msc
Figure 1: Vista Security Policy
In the Security Policy editor select Security Settings/Local Policies/Security
Figure 2: Select Security Options Vista UAC
Now scroll down to the two following Security Options
1) User Account Control: behavior of the elevation prompt for admins
2) User Account Control: behavior of the elevation prompt for standard users
For each of the above, select the desired option.
Selecting "Elevate without prompt" will get rid of the annoying pop-up
boxes, and will also help software load faster.

Reboot Vista to make the policy work.
