USAMA here is the way to turn off user account control:
On any version of Vista, except Home Basic and Home Premium, you can disable UAC for administrator accounts by following these steps:
1. Click the Start button and launch the Local Security Policy editor by entering secpol.msc in the Search box.
2. Select the Local Policies item in the left panel to expand the tree, then expand Security Options under Local Policies.
3. Scroll down the list in the right panel to locate User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode. Right-click that item and choose Properties.
4. Select Elevate without prompting and close the dialog.
If you use Vista Home Basic or Home Premium, the Local Security Policy editor, unfortunately, isn't included. To disable UAC for administrator accounts, you'll need to edit the Registry. Follow these steps to do that — and be extremely careful, since mistakes could render your system unusable
1. Click Start and enter regedit in the Search box to launch the Registry Editor.
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ System
3. Double-click the ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin item.
4. Change the value to 00000000.
5. Close the dialog and exit the Registry Editor.
I copied this from a windows secrets newsletter that I used to receive.
