After its debut in Windows Vista, User Account Control has had major improvements. Still, lots of people tend to turn it off. In Windows 8 User Account Control is here to stay. Why are some applications still requesting elevation? Can I still turn off User Account Control in Windows 8 and should I? This session demonstrates how User Account Control is a part of Windows 8 and how Modern UI Apps are affected. Demos show how security-related compatibility issues caused by legacy applications can be analyzed and what solutions are available to fix them yourself. The session has an overview of potential issues and what tools can enable you to take control over both legacy applications and web applications accessed by Windows Internet Explorer 10.
