Exposing Microsoft Windows 7 User Account Control (UAC)

If you have not heard about User Account Control (UAC) yet, then you need to spend a little time in the archives and blogs surrounding Windows Vista and 7. UAC was first introduced with Windows Vista and ever since has been one of the most debated, talked about, and controversial technologies surrounding post Windows XP desktops. For administrators, UAC is one of the primary reasons Windows Vista is not running for the desktop operating system. For end users, UAC never quite lived up to the marketing and potential that was first generated by Microsoft around the technology. Now that we have nearly seen the full cycle of Windows Vista (yup, it was short lived and not all that glamorous), the next generation, Windows 7, is being tested, evaluated, and criticized for the implementation of UAC that it contains. Here we will look at the old and new UAC technology to determine if you should consider Windows 7 and UAC.

Thanks Nigel,

Security is annoying, but if you don't use it, don't whine when you get infected. It's like crossing an ocean with nothing but a sextant. Sure it's been done, but only because that was the best technology available at the time. You have to do a lot of clicking to make it more trouble than reinstalling or repairing an infected system.
