  1. Using an administrator account, logon the computer you want to monitor.
  2. Navigate to Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.
  3. Type regedit.
  4. Expand the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System.
  5. Locate or create a DWORD entry named LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy and provide a DWORD value of 1.
    Note:To re-enable remote UAC, change this value to 0.
