Can a popup put you in prison?
You love it, you hate it....ok, you may hate it, but....
You’ve seen it, or at least heard about it in Windows Vista: User Account Control or UAC (formerly known as LUA or Least Privileged User Account). With the release of Windows Vista, we hope that more and more ‘cyberholics’ will better appreciate this new feature.
There has been tons of speculation, concern and anxiety around how UAC will impact troubleshooting and workflow so I want to be sure everyone understands the basics and knows where to get more information. Much of this will be obtained in a well constructed UAC technical documentation released on the Microsoft TechNet portal. We would also like to recommend you read the Tim Sprinston’s blog, which provide unique perspective to have a good understanding to UAC:
Here is some data that you should keep in mind before deciding to turn UAC off!
1. -Does it have an application compatibility database entry?
2. -Is it made for Vista by having a manifest?
3. -Is it a setup/install routine?
