from what i can see, othe only thing default UAC does differently, is if I click an option in control panel that requires admin privelidges it doesnt say "Are you really sure your qualified to do that?" other than that its exactly the same.... flashes up on softweare installations, run as administrator, compatibility mode, run downloaded files, etc. etc. etc. how is that less secure? if a program tries to change the settings it still asks me,
"I was disappointed when I first used a Windows 7 machine that there was no warning that I had no anti-virus, unlike Vista," Genes said
well when i forgot to install my AV it gave me half an hour, then reminded me.....
Also, does anyone actually still read the messages? i generally automatically click yes.... if a program actually triggered UAC when it wasnt supposed to id probaby click yes, then go "oh [insert bad word here]"
