Win Vista – Turning UAC on

  • If you have multiple user accounts on your system, log-in as an Administrator user (in the screenshot, taken from Control Panel / User accounts, we can see our system has two users, "John" is an Administrator and "Robert" is a Standard user; we will then login as John)
  • Press "Start" button then select "Control Panel"
  • Click on "User Accounts" 
  • In the next screen, click on "User Accounts" again 
  • Click on "Turn User Account Control on or off"; when Vista asks your permission to continue, click on "Continue" button 
  • Check (enable) "Use Use Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer" checkbox 
  • Windows will now ask you to restart the computer; click on "Restart Now" button 
  • After Windows has restarted, log in as an Administrator or as a Standard User and install SendBlaster; when Windows asks your permission to do something, always allow the operation. If you are installing as a Standard User, the Administrator password is needed anyway to complete the process.
