For those want to get the registration dialog to stop nagging them when running on Vista...

1) Right click on CS2, select Run As Administrator
2) Fill in the login box if prompted to do so
Allow Vista to switch to an administrator enabled version of your user

3) Allow CS2 to run, resolve the prompt to register
4) Close CS2

Basically CS2 needs to be privileged to do something to clear the registration dialog. Once you've done that you can go back to be a regular user again for future work.

Don't disable UAC though, it's one of the security elements added to Vista to stop malware from getting itself installed on your PC without your consent. Don't blindly click on "yes, accept, yes, just do it" without actually taking a moment to read the prompts first!
