Tune UAC

1 12 2007


I am happy to share my first application (along with the source) with you all 🙂

Tune UAC – A small, easy application to configure the User Account Control settings in Windows Vista

Let me explain the application features one by one,

The initial screen looks like,

Tune UAC reads your current UAC settings and displays the results accordingly in the initial screen

Available features are,

1) Turn on/off User Account Control,

2) User Account Control behavior for Administrators,

3) User Account Control behavior for Users, and

4) Prompt for Secure Desktop

There is a Help button for each of the feature which will explain what it is and it’s options.

Below is an example,

If you are not sure whether your system has the recommended UAC settings, you can check with Tune UAC’s Check My Settings feature which would check for the same, and if not, inform the same along with which settings are causing the problem. You can allow Tune UAC to automatically fix these issues or you can change it later using Tune UAC.

I have hosted Tune UAC at Codeplex and released under Microsoft Reciprocal License (Ms-RL)

Feel free to test, report bugs and also fix bugs 😉
