How to turn-off User Account Control [UAC] easily in Windows Vista using the Command Prompt?

I has sometime back blogged on "How to disable the annoying User Account Control [UAC] feature in Windows Vista easily?", but then it required the installation of a 3rd party software and many annoying steps. Finally now I have found a very simple step to turn-off the User Account Control [UAC] easily in Windows Vista using just a few lines on the Command Prompt.

Follow the steps below and you should be able to turn-off the UAC feature easily.
  • Just Enter "cmd" in the search Box under the Start menu
  • Then right-click the highlighted result and choose Run as administrator from the contextual menu.
  • Finally you will need to enter the following (as a single line):

reg.exe ADD HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion
PoliciesSystem /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

Also, incase you would like to turn ON UAC anytime in future. Put the code below instead
reg.exe ADD HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
