Windows 7: Let's discuss UAC here

That and I think the false-positives were to great for MS to implement a true UAC. GPU-Z whenever run, asks me for permission. I have shortcut to at least five programs that require me to click ok.

I can't imagine typing in the user/pass each time especially since it asks each time I run the program as it doesn't say "Oh you want to allow this everytime its ran. Ok will do"

I think the setup they have is a grey-area instead of black and white of admin vs. user

agreed.... I run Peerblock on startup, and it needs admin privelidges to kick in, I have made a batch file to auto elevate it without prompting if its ran on startup, you couldn't do that in the "user vs admin" scenario

Severedsolo, would you mind sending a copy of that batch file to cashmo at hotmail dot com? I have a similar need.

Thanks,

Discuss: Bulletstorm
So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
