Just for reference, the practices below are the absolute worst thing you can do for your computer. Setting the uac to not work, then run as admin all the time is just asking for viruses, trojans, and hackers to come on in and basically do whatever they like with your system. Bad, bad, bad. Don't do these things.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Every machine should (at minimum) have two accounts, one admin account used for installing software, and one normal everyday account that is a regular user with no admin privs that is used for your day to day computing, because then since there is no admin access, if a box pops up asking you for your admin credentials, and you didn't do anything to envoke said dialog, then you can be pretty sure something is trying to access your machine that shouldn't be doing so. Most times, simply canceling the admin login dialog at that point will keep your system safe, but at least then you know you need to take a look at your system and see what's going on.
It's extremely bad computing practice to run with admin accounts and UAC turned off, you really should change this as soon as is practical.
