Is there a UAC in Windows 7 that I can turn off?

I am trying to install a program on Windows 7.  I have tried running it as administrator and running it in compatibility mode.  No Joy!!

If you right click on the Installer and select Run as Administrator, and then it will not install, it may not be compatible with Windows 7.

In Windows 7, UAC is in Control Panel, User Accounts. It should not be disabled. If you do temporarily disable to try to install your program, re-enable it after.

Is this just the slide bar?

You slide it to the bottom to turn it off. Do so only as a temporary measure, however.
