Whats the worst?
Having UAC that wont let you even delete a file without confirmation witch happens EVERY F*** DAY or get an infection of malware witch happens...well, I've had it two times last 6 months...and it took about two-three hours to clean the system up...so tell me...witch is WORST?
The F****** UAC is there every day and I hate it....
I actually have to ask for permission to move a file, open a program ON MY OWN COMPUTER!!!!
No way, Jose...
I'm for the malware, the virus or anything else that comes along!
Some thoughts regarding your post: (Note: I'm currently running UAC set to Always Notify.) File copy & UAC:
I'm copying a lot of files between several partitions and external disks, and never get bothered by UAC.
You might want to check your permission settings for those partitions/folders. Once set up properly, this should be a non-issue.
The only places where UAC kicks in are Windows system folders/files, and that I consider a VERY good thing. Software & UAC:
Concerning that, you might want to try Bypass UAC for Standard Users
. I'm running a couple of system utilities that way, and never had a problem so far.
Anyway, also here, UAC will only prompt if the program intends to make changes to the system. And also here, I'd say once configured properly, UAC shouldn't bother you during daily use.
And a final thought about your last line...
(no offence intended, just my humble opinion)
It's for exactly that attitude, that there are still that many vulnerable systems around. People that disable security features or don't feel the need to install security patches, updates, etc. just because it's inconvenient. How well this works, and how well those people are protected we can see on a daily base. Just look at the most recent case, the spread of Conficker. Well yeah, just my 2 Cents
