    This probably annoys the crap out of anyone who uses Vista, virtually everything you run (as a developer) requires elevated privlages...

    So to disable this nice "buy vista for the security" feature... (called UAP)

    1) Open an elevated Command Prompt

    2) type "secpol" (Vista version of gpedit.msc)

    3) Browse under "Local Settings -> Security Settings" and scroll down to the "User Account Protection" options and change "Run all users, including Administrators, as standard users." to Disabled. (Or leave this enabled, but just change the "Behavior of the elevation prompt for Administrators" to "No Prompt".)
