About User Account Control
User Account Control informs you when a software program is trying to make changes to your computer that require administrator-level permission. User Account Control helps protect your computer from being changed by an unauthorized source.
User Account Control displays differently for Standard user accounts and Administrator accounts. For more information about the different user account types, see Managing User Accounts and Logins in Windows 7

Enter the Administrator password, and click Yes to continue. If you do not know the Administrator password, you cannot continue.
User Account Control with Administrator accounts
If you are logged into an Administrator account, User Account Control asks permission for a program to make changes to the computer. By default, User Account Control appears for Administrators only when an outside program tries to make changes to the computer.
