2012R2 Happiness – How to get there

I have been running 2012r2 for a little while at least 4+ years. This is what I have come up with to alter the experience for me.

Backup Your Registry before adding this. Not responsible for Issues concerning this.

Create a txt.reg for this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system]

“EnableLUA”=dword:00000000

“RequireSecuritySignature”=dword:00000000
“EnableSecuritySignature”=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters]

I must warn you this does decrease security somewhat.
