Authentication Providers disabled in SharePoint 2010

During my recent development I just came across this situation where I need to change Authentication Provider settings. I just found the option in disabled mode. Also other options like New, Extend, Delete where all disabled. I was in local administrator group as well.

My Server configuration is - Windows 2008 R2 Standard

I just closed browser and reopen with "Run As Administrator" and I found all options enabled.

The issue was with the User Account Control(UAC). You can enabled options from

What I did than was Just right click on the Internet Explorer.
IE -> Shortcut -> Advanced -> Check Run as administrator to always run IE as in administrator privileged.

Hope that help you.
