Have you tested with the release version the release preview version is a beta product. – Ramhound Nov 6 '12 at 15:55

You can fully disable UAC through the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, set EnableLUA to 0).

However, on Windows 8, this will stop Metro apps from working until you turn it back on, and is therefore not recommended.
