In Windows 7, to turn off User Account Control (UAC) settings, you would have to move the slider to “Never notify me”. This selection disables UAC.
Note: You must restart your computer when you enable or disable UAC. Changing levels of notification does not require that you restart your computer.

Hope this helps!
I also had this very annoying problem. In my case it was solved by changing the UAC level 9details bellow). First, please notice that any disable/enable of the UAC requires a restart! (But only changing the level of the UAC does not require a restart as long as it is not a enable/disable event, that is, as long as the slider does not arrive in or came from the "Never notify me" position).
Steps I followed:
- temporarily disabled UAC (moving the slider to "Never notify me"), followed by a restart (required by this disabling);
- installed the app, then moving the UAC slider to the intermediary position between the default one and the "Never notify me"one (and a new restart was required).
After that, I could install the app without giving up completely to the UAC.
I did not want to disable UAC forever, being in a house with kids or other less experienced (on computers, particularly on windows) persons. UAC might be useful if they would not exaggerate it that much --- remember those funny commercials between the Mac guy and the PC (Vista) one, which was accompanied by a security guy which was asking him for confirmation on each Mac guy question and on each PC guy reply ;-) ?
PS: IMHO, this is a sample of some very annoying and incredibly abusive habits that Microsoft has related to its customers. (And it seems that it'll get even worse with the upcoming Windows 8...)
Being my computer, with a paid license for the OS and not part of a corporation, I think that I have the right to install whatever I want, even if that might hurt me: if an user is so stupid or naive to install malicious apps, so be it. At most, warn him/her, but do not forbid that using tools that are available only in the most expensive edition! (Or, if you insist, enforce the restriction only in those expensive editions!)
Don't know how you came up with this, but IT WORKS! Thanks. I was trying to update the software on my new Blackberry Bold 9900 and got this error message. Talk about being frustrated!!! Don't know why the "error message" couldn't just tell us that the UAC must be set to "Never notify me" temporarily - instead they drive us crazy.
Thanks for saving me.
