here you go: –

Click on start and then type "UAC" in the search box (without quotes) and hit enter.
A window will open up that will allow you to set your UAC level. Set it to "never notify". Done– note: – generally most users should leave this at a higher level to prevent malware etc.

Click on start and look at the bottom right-hand side, just opposite All programs – you will see the word Run (in the shaded area). Click on run. A small window will open up and there you go.

Post if you have any issues.
