    UAC isn't too bad... if you're not installing stuff then you rarely see it... For admins, what's an extra couple of clicks when I'm always clicking anyway...

    It does scare people from running programs, saved many pcs from problems with the user calling me asking what to do next... granted calls at 11pm on Friday nites from boys who need the latest 'codecs' to watch nature programs does get annoying! lol...
