    A Closer Look: User Account Control

    A Closer Look at Windows 7 User Account Control.

    There is not probably a single Windows Vista user who is not annoyed by Vista’s User Account Control. Not many computer users on the other hand would say that the UAC is a waste of resources and not beneficial to system security. What Microsoft did not make right in Windows Vista was to find the right balance between annoyance and security but they promise to do better in Windows 7. The User Account Control did not get redesigned in Windows 7. It is still an integral part of the system’s security. What Microsoft did change is the amount of notifications a user receives.

    They integrated a UAC slider in Windows 7 which will not display an UAC notification anymore when the user makes active changes to the Windows 7 settings. It will however still popup a notification if a software wants to make those changes. There are three additional UAC slider settings that change the amount of notifications and prompts the user receives.

    I would have to agree, here MS finally did a good thing and allow us to use this for what we want. Rather then the old on and off. Since I have been working for eBay I have seen a need for UAC since I didn't think many newbies actually did everyday tasks on the computer. At least now for the elite people or maybe the not so elite, we will be able to manage this :) Below is a pic so you don't need to go to another site to view it.
