Are you asking how to access the hidden administrator account in Vista? Like this

UAC will need to be disabled first.
Also read about security issues when doing this.

Disabling UAC completely is VERY BAD ADVICE.

For experienced users, it's fine. But for new/inexperienced users - no, not good advice.

no. Not good advice for ANYONE. If you don't like the popup warnings just run UAC in quiet mode. But disabling it makes no sense for anyone.

That's your business. But to recommend that anyone else run it that way is irresponsible. UAC serves a significant and critical purpose. As I said, if you don't like interacting with it, just run it in quiet mode. The fact that you don't know about quiet mode speaks to your lack of understanding of UAC.

It does make sense for a lot of people, myself included.  Guess what, I haven't had a single problem because of it.

I also know what I'm doing, and my computer doesn't rule itself.

You might need to run it, don't hold others to your measuring stick.

UAC is definitely an excellent security feature, but annoying as heck. I disabled it completely almost straight away, and have had no problems.

Why, may I ask?

Why would you disable it if you can use it in quiet mode?

But you know what? I'm a great believer in people doing whatever they want with their own systems and property. Not so much when they suggest others do the same when those others may suffer a negative impact by following that advice. But I didn't come here to fight, just to try to help - though it's true I can be pretty opinionated (even though I like to think they are "informed opinions" :) ). So I'll continue trying to provide helpful and intelligent advice to those who need and request it and try to be a little less strident with those who "know what they are doing". Okay?
