Changing the way that Vista User Access Control (UAC) works in Vista by group policy

James gave me some hassle the other day for not referencing his blog (which is a valid thing to do), so I thought I would point out this post as it will end some of the gripes of people out there.

Using Group Policy you can change the following:

    1. User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators
    2. User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for standard users
    3. User Account Control: Elevate on application installs
    4. User Account Control: Run all users, including administrators, as standard users
    5. User Account Control: Validate signatures of executables that require elevation
    6. User Account Control: Virtualize file and registry write failures to per-user locations

More information from James Blog at Views on Windows Vista : Can I customise UAC?.
