Windows 7 - pull your slider up
Windows 7: User Account Control (UAC) overview:
One of the issues I have with the much complained about UAC in Vista is that it got a bad rap. For the bulk of the user population if you turned off UAC when you installed software and then turned it on right after, you never saw it again.
Steve Friedl wrote a very good techdoc on how to set up a limited user account in Windows 7 http://unixwiz.net/techtips/win7-limited-user.html
But the point of this blog post is more about how I think people should be zipping up their Windows 7. UAC should be up at the top of their defense in depth slider bar (In fact, I have a sushi food bet that by the time Windows 7 SP1 ships they will make the default of that UAC slider bar back up to the top. Anyone who knows anything at all about me knows that I don't much like raw fish)
So here you have it, Susan's single handed marketing campaign to get you to slide your Defense in depth zipper up.
Boxers, Tshirts, Mugs, hats and other swag will be out shortly.
