      *confusing*

      I never see this windows one my win2008 server ( as administrator ) and you also can deactivate it by Control Panel > User Accounts – UAC on off etc.

      LOL!

      I actually have no idea why msconfig.exe is still around, in Windows 7 everything is configurable in other places. But I guess it’s a handly legacy tool instead of gpedit.msc and bcdedit and all that.

      They should re-do it to make it super awesome for 7/2008 R2, like they did with Wordpad and Paint and Calc…

      For all of you there who are annoyed with constantly confirming your actions, here’s how you can disable UAC.

      1) Launch msconfig – Start > Run > Type in “msconfig” > press enter

      2) Go to the tools tab

      3) Scroll down and find Disable UAC near the bottom.

      4) Launch it

      5) Reboot

      It can also be restored just as easy by launching the Enable UAC tool.

      I hope this will help those of you to get rid of the “Continue button nightmare”.
