I will probably catch a lot of flack, but UAC is not something you should be disabling! Anywhere where UAC stops you from writing to should probably not be written to, and worst case, changing file permissions is really easy. I just get miffed when people complain about MS being insecure, but then go and remove security. This is very similar to the unix Root User, and the associated su and sudo commands. No body would dare run linux as root, why would they run windows as it?

How can you live with UAC. I think that is crazy. Talk about a nag screen!!!

My mother is 81, and when I was setting up her desktop the way she like she likes it, she said, " I am not going to have that thing popping up all the time, am I? (loose quote)
