What is UAC and how do I turn it off?

In the install guide it says to turn off the UAC. I’ve not been asked to do this before for an installation, what does it do and how do I do it?


Version : V5 - V8R1
Module : Settings
OS : Windows 8
Topics : Installation UAC control

This is the Windows user account control settings which controls how the operating system prompts or warns about new programs being installed. Turn control off on the settings page to avoid system messages which might not be seen due to permissions assigned to the user account.This avoids any permission issues that might otherwise have been encountered during installation.
You can switch the control back to always notify afterwards if you prefer.
