Windows Whenever we talk about Windows 7 on OSNews, you'll always hear me advise you to change the UAC settings by setting it to its highest level, since Windows 7's default simply isn't secure. You might wonder why you should deal with additional prompts - what is the security risk actually like? Well, it's pretty big.

well, one of the posters above said: that the loosening of UAC was becuase of the whinners. well,
that poster was dead on right.

Microsoft tryed to go into a more secure mode. ppl you all complained. so, they loosened it up.
