I concur with your piece/rant sir, 100%
Sometimes Windows needs to be reminded of who's the boss. Turn off that persistent mothering/nanny tool and be the boss of your own PC today! First thing i did when i install a brand new Win7 system too. All is well after that
And don't tell me I don't know what I am doing, because I do. All arguments for UAC in a standalone, non networked PC running only trusted apps are null and void.
