  Depends how cynical you're being ;-)  A lot of complaints have been
addressed at how UAC is so intrusive users just end up turning it off
completely.  (It's also, at least in win7, trivial for viruses etc. to bypass
programmatically, because MS left a wide-open back door in it for the benefit
of their own software.  Duh!)
