User Account Control (UAC) is a part of the Windows security system which prevents apps from making unwanted changes on your PC. When some software tries to change system-related parts of the file system, Windows shows a UAC confirmation dialog, where the user should confirm if he/she really wants to make those changes.

See Wikipedia for more information.
