Disable UAC on Windows Server 2008

Today my Windows Server 2008 box is acting really weird. Mesh can not download and overwrite some files because it needs administrator permissions. Total Commander can not write to its own ini file.
When I ran Mesh with administrator privileges it refused to run. Running it again with user privileges messes up the links between folders on Mesh and local machine.
So, I'm going to disable UAC and see what happens.

To disable User Access Control (UAC) on Windows Server, use Start -> Run, type MSCONFIG. Go to Tools tab and scroll down. Close to bottom there are options to Enable and Disable UAC. Reboot is required.
