    That's interesting. One of the first things I do when I do a fresh install, is to turn off UAC as it irritates me with the pop-ups constantly. I haven't been infected with a virus since Windows XP though, so I think I got a hold of it all.

    Interesting read anyways, thanks for posting it :)

    think the original article should have been renamed to "Noobs and Porn website users turning off UAC....." :devilish:
