On the network I control, 99.99% of the client workstations have users running at nothing more than Domain User and Local User on the machines. They can't install anything unless it's something I've defined in the GPO. The other 0.01% is my workstation.

I think there are a lot of Windows "administrators" that need to take a share of the blame.

thats a office network i guess. UAC and its like is a creation for the home computer, where win9x was king, and everyone had admin rights.
