I really object to disabling UAC. While it can be defeated by some
malware, I don't know how much, I see no reason to disable a layer
of protection when all you have to do is issue the command alt y
when UAC comes up. Why disable a security utility when it is so
easy to allow programs to be installed? You are decreasing security
for no advantage that means anything.

If you do not want the UAC screen to come up when installing nvda
and some other programs he will need to do the following.
Press the windows key and in the search box type uac it should
come up with a suggestion press the enter key on it.
The next screen that comes up you will need to Tab until you hear
the slider it is set to 65 percent or around there change it to
zero with the arrow keys left or right then tab down to ok then
press the enter key.
It will reboot the pc if I remember right and the uac screen will
not come up again. It can be turned back on by doing the same
process except in the slider change from zero back to 65 percent
or what ever it is.
hope it helps.
