Personal experience with UAC.

It drove me crazy in Vista so I turned it off, but recently I was doing a reinstall of Win 7 on daughter's laptop, and (my own fault) the flash drive I keep all my downloads on got infected without my realising it, before the AntiVirus had completed installing. When I put the flash drive back into the desktop, it immediately tried to infect that with continually changing .exe's.

UAC stopped it dead and I was able to track it down and kill it without damage.

So, I will continue to run UAC in Win 7 and Win 8 and put up with the nuisance value, knowing that it does work.

Cheers, Rob
