Enabled. I like the extra security. Although the poll options are slightly confusing so I'm just clicking yes and assuming it means enabled.

Thanks Greg for the directions and the heads up on HD Tune, haven't tried running on 7 yet.

One more bit on UAC behavior: can't right click on blank spot of the Task Bar to bring up context menu for split screen - TM and the rest. Never saw complaints on this; anyone else with this particular issue?

If you make a decision to do something on YOUR computer , do you want something
asking you if it is OK ???

Nope, but I do want it to ask if its OK for a program to do something.

Its a line of defense against viruses and whatnot. I don't go around telling people to keep their UAC on or anything, personally its their choice to have that extra line of defense.

As for slowing you down, maybe by half a second? The only time I even 'realize' UAC is being annoying is when I read threads like these. Then they are not annoying a few hours later. My brain is funny like that.

Ya, I agree, going around telling people what to do is rude.
