User Account Control– Feature of Windows from vista onwards

Tip -How to adjust UAC notifications

Details - UAC enables users to perform common tasks as non-administrators, called standard users in Windows Vista, and as administrators without having to switch users, log off, or use Run As. Also it help you stay in control of your computer by informing you when a program makes a change that requires administrator-level permission. UAC works by adjusting the permission level of the user account. This makes it so that even if you're using an administrator account, changes cannot be made to your computer without you knowing about it, which can help prevent malicious software (malware) and spyware from being installed on or making changes to your computer.
In Windows server 2008/Windows 7, you can adjust how often UAC notifies you when changes are made to your computer.

How to adjust UAC notifications:  Open User Account Control Settings by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type uac, and then click Change User Account Control settings.

Note: It is recommend that you choose either the Always notify or the Default - Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer UAC setting when using websites.
