Stop User Account Control under Vista

June 6, 2007

Vista constantly asks for confirmation of actions when you’re installing software. This is designed to prevent worms and trojans from doing their thing, but some installations that worked under XP will fail under Vista because of this behavior. You can fix it (and stop the constant nagging) by stopping “User Account Control” as follows:

  1. Go to Start > Control Panel > User Accounts.
  2. Click on “Turn user account control on or off”.
  3. Uncheck “Use user account control (UAC) to protect your computer”.
  4. Click “OK”.
  5. Reboot.

  9. […]Disabled UAC and still can’t get Apache running. I ran the xampp-portcheck.exe and the status of port 80 is SYSTEM. I do a netstat -ano and there is no 127.0.0.1:80 in the list like I thought there should be. I also checked to see if IIS is running and it isn’t. Something is blocking, Does .netbeing installed screw things up.
