    This is a very silly thing to do.

    UAC is one of the cornerstones in Windows Vista and Windows 7 security. Turning it off leaves you open to numerous vulnerabilities, and negates many of the security improvements Microsoft has done since the disaster that was Windows XP.

    Please DO NOT recommend that anyone does this.

    I believe the idea was to do that temporarily and turn it back on after the driver was installed.
    That said, disabling UAC is not longer required as of version 2.0 beta.
