Uac is what is protecting the program files and windows folders. These are protected folders and is the reason you have to click continue and get permission each time.

As already stated, your personal files should be stored where they normally would be, in documents, pictures, videos etc. Windows 7 expects these kinds of files to be there and as such works better when things are organized. I highly suggest you stay out of protected folder if you are not a advanced user.

While you might be an admin on your pc, UAC was made so that you are not running as admin until a prompt appears to elevate you. If you elevate yourself at the prompt, you are giving temporary admin privileges for that request and only that request.

UAC improves the security of the system greatly, and helps protect against threats and malware.
