I actually do blame Microsoft for a lot of the confusion and many of the issues surrounding users running as admin.

I come from a professional IT background involving Client-Server networks where it would be unheard of for a user to run an administrator account as their default.

When Microsoft combined their Professional and home product lines with the release of XP They chose the easy route of making the first default user an admin without any advice the user on the "Best Practice".

This has led to developers, users, and the malware writers to expect the presence of the Admin user.

The abuse of the Admin user by malware has led Microsoft to implement UAC to try to move the user to adopt the old safer practice of a standard user elevated to admin only when needed.

personally I find UAC as a benefit which allows me to more easily work to my "normal" policy, but I can sympathise with those users who find it annoying

They made a mistake in the past and are trying to rectify it...if any sympathy I would give it there...

UAC is much much better than people give credit for...I can run a limited account and elevate only when needed...very good security practice and if you look at OSX or linux...you see it is already been implemented...
