    Attention Need to remove UAC password

    Basically, my mums laptop has 2 passwords on it. One to login and the other is the admin password required by UAC. Basically, I want to turn the UAC off because its annoying as hell. Only issue, can't remember the password. How can I recover/change the password or turn UAC off without needing that password.

    The Vista Administrator account doesn't get them annoying UAC pop-ups. Rename the admin account to what ever you want and use that to log in... you'll never be bothered by UAC again...

    Vista without UAC is the best OS ever...

    ...so good they pretended it was new and called it Windows 7.
