Turning Off UAC (Vista)


UAC or User Account Control should be turned off when using Holdem Manager.

Note:  Most of the time running Holdem Manager's three main .exe applications as an Administrator will allow you to use Holdem Manager with User Account Control on.





To disable User Account Control, do the following:

1. On your desktop, navigate to Start > Control Panel. The Control Panel dialog should pop up.


2. In the left pane, click on Control Panel Home.

3. In the right pane under User Accounts and Family Safety, click on Add or remove user accounts. You should now see the following screen:





4. Under User Account, click on the Go to the main User Account page.


5. Click on one of the user accounts. For example, you can use the Guest account.


6. You should now see the screen above. Unselect Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer and click on OK.

7. You will be prompted to restart your computer, click Restart.




UAC Security Concerns

Lowering the UAC level on your computer does increase your security risk; however, if you have Anti Virus software installed, you are well protected.


More than likely you will welcome turning off UAC because it will remove all the prompts you get when you install software and change account settings.

If you want to keep UAC on, you must run three applications as an Administrator.
