Precisely.

Heres one more image, my private accounts full taskbar. This way I can also change keyboard layout quickly; I need English, German and Finnish layouts daily. Pen Tablet is easily reachable from here, too.

UAC needs a permit list. "Always Allow" Some hacker should be able to figure this out.

There IS a way to do it (I use it), and it is quite simple.
Open up Task Scheduler, and create a task for your statup program. Run it 'Run with Highest Priveledges".

Here is the tutorial.
Just make sure you substitute the time with Log On (not startup!).

That people still call it Windows Vista SP3 and think it's as bad as vista in every sense. That's what all mac forums i frequent say(macrumors anyone?). And if you dare to be open-minded, you get trashed with the whole "we dont get a virus" and "your pc is a civic while our macs are bmw's mercedes benz Lexus" and so on.
Oh well, one more thing about Windows 7 i don't like is the 3d taskbar(super bar now?). Yes, it is way better but everything gets clogged in there. If you're on a laptop and have many windows open in a separate window, everything gets pushed to a single icon instead of multiple ones(unless there is an option i have overseen which is pretty likely so).
I think i got so used to xp, the change is taking more than it needs to.

I have played with the demo for Vista Start Menu. I am not 100% satisfied, but it is a reasonable facsimile of what I want.

I had to resize the top of the menu down (drag) - it was defeating the purpose with the default layout.

I access it with a Systray icon (always shown).

It doesn't do any different delete than emptying the trash can. All shift delete does is skip the trash can and mark the files as deleted. You can still use Recuva or GetDataBack and recover the files. It does skip 1 move from current location to trash can, but moves are an extremely quick thing for an OS(same drive to same drive, which throwing in the trash is). It still has to go through each chunk on the drive and mark it as free.

This only solves the problem if you want it to start up with the computer. Say someone always wanted to run say Vegas Video, Photoshop, Visual Studio, some game in Administrative mode. I don't want them starting when I log into the computer, so I will still be forced to ctrl+shift+click something to start it in admin mode (or right click and say run as administrator). I like the idea of an always allow this digitally signed program, with matching hashes, to run without me having to give permission. Similar to many of the Microsoft assemblies/libraries etc which always run in Admin mode.
