Windows 7: User Account Control Settings

User Account Control Settings

Hello all....

I'm just wondering what all of you are running (if at all) your UAC at? Post and let us know.

I have mine set at "full"; slider all the way up. I've seen from experience over at x64 that it's a bad idea to operate with it disabled...
People that (supposedly...) know what they're doing getting infected!

Just curious.

I've found that leaving it at the default setting feels a lot like using tweakUAC, but with more info. They've done well with adjusting the UAC

I agree. It is nice to have a choice of UAC security levels. Plus, to not have to restart for them to be applied.

With all that I've been doing; I've completely disabled it for a time to see if things were easier to do without the prompts. I will enable it again to full on....

Both times I've disabled it I've had to restart for it to take effect. Maybe it's just mine.

You are correct Ted. You only need to restart if turning UAC off or on, and not while just adjusting the level while UAC is still on.

Hello Brink....

Well the way today has been going; I was beginning to wonder if I'm having flashbacks from my youth again....

Thanks for clearing that up!

I've left mine at the default for the time being. A lot less prompts than in Vista. Different levels is a nice step forward.
