Can I use something like

:w !sudo tee %

in GVIM for Windows? Is there any analogue?

Or can I disable UAC for one program only and always run it as administrator?

This is difficult; you can try the SudoEdit.vim - Edit Files using sudo or su or any other tool plugin.

But it's probably easiest to just launch (G)Vim with elevated priviledges itself.
