    [​IMG]UAC or User Account Control is one of the very good features provided by Windows Vista and Windows 7. However, many people try to disable it as they think that UAC is useless!

    Malwares attack computers by modifying the system files and registry so that it will be executed automatically every time the computer turn on. UAC will ask our permission before letting the malwares attack our computers. Malwares will never have the chance to attack our computer if we do not disable UAC and click "No / Cancel" button when the UAC ask our permission. Don't simply click "Yes / Continue" button if we don't really know what the program is!



    Most people try to disable UAC as they feel angry to the UAC prompt asking them the permission to execute the program. However, when we disable UAC, no more UAC prompt to prevent malware from attacking our computer. Don't trust anti-virus that it can protect our computer from malwares as malwares always update faster than anti-virus! Anti-virus update its definition after new malwares are reported. However, the fact is that there are so many malwares which are undetectable by the best updated anti-virus (like kaspersky) as they grow very very very fast.

    Thus, don't ever disable UAC or you will become one of the victim attacked by malwares!

    Don't ever click "Yes / Continue" button (in UAC prompt) if you don't really know what the program is!

    Click "No / Cancel" button (in UAC prompt) if you don't know the program is malware or not.

    The best policy is:
    Set the UAC settings to the highest level:
