Welcome to IWETHEY!

New I LOVE the scenario where they say disabling is reasonable
During demos.

Hey, we want to sell some crap.
Hey, it runs horrible when UAC is enabled.
No problem, turn it off.

New That typifies the problem with UAC:
Marketing got a say. :-/

Their goals are noble. Unfortunately, their execution leaves something to be desired. Part of that problem is the sheer historical weight of programs and habits of defaulting to Administator privileges for everything. Reviewers are not helping by laying the problems almost entirely at Microsoft's feet. That's not to say the Microsoft have made mistake with it, of course.

Wade.


Is it enough to love
Is it enough to breathe
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
 
Is it enough to die
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be Anything but Ordinary
Please
