How do I disable these endless annoying dialogs which ask my permission for
every minor thing ?

I'm a solo home user behind a good Linksys firewall.

Go to Control Panel ----User Accounts ----"Turn User Accounts Control on
or off". When you turn it off it will put a security warning on the
task bar.

Well I don't get this for every "minor" thing - I do WORK with my computer,
not play with it.
What are you doing that you get UAC all the time?

Your definition of "play" obviously differs with many users here,
because this isn't the first time you've so rudely replied to such a
question.

Quit trying to be a freaking nanny and just answer the OP's question -
IF you can.

Well it would be HELPFUL don't you think, if the Op told us what he was
DOING to cause UAC to pop up so many times.

Jeeeeze........

Well, my definition of WORKing on my computer is to create, install, debug
and remove software on a constant basis. The software has to work whether
you are an individual who turns UAC on or off. As a result, I see that
stupid prompt about 20 times a day, but I have to live with it. Otherwise, I
don't get to have the "user" experience for the software being created.
Eventually, the product will only produce the nag for the "user" once, if
UAC is turned on and hopefully the software will still work if the "user" is
fickle about turning it off and back on. So, what do you mean by WORK on
your computer? Filling out a spreadsheet? Typing a letter?

I think the point is you could have asked a question without accusation that
the OP was doing something wrong.

To disable UAC prompts (aka "Quiet Mode") NOT UAC.
Run Regedit and navigate to
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\System]
Change the value of ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin from "2" to "0".

Is the regedit solution same or different from

Control Panel ----User Accounts ----"Turn User Accounts Control on
or off".

Thanks.
