1.     Open User Accounts by clicking Start > Control Panel > User Accounts and Family Safety (or by clicking User Accounts if you are connected to a network domain), and then clicking User Accounts.

2.     Click Turn User Account Control on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

3.     Select the option "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer" to turn on UAC. Or clear this option to turn off UAC, and then click OK.
