User Account Control Settings in Windows 7

One of the nice features in Windows 7 is the possibility to tell the system weather it should communicate to you about the changes in your system that applications are attempting to do or not.

The tool is accessible through the ControlPanel->AllControlPannelItems->ActionCenter->ChangeAccountControlSettings
