Re: Windows 7 UAC compromised

The biggest issue here is that although it's technically easy to fix
this problem (just have UAC issue an alert when somebody's messing with
the system settings), it involves doing more of what end users dislike
most about UAC (it issuing alerts to Joe Sixpack all the time when he
does something bone-headed security-wise).

Fixing this one in a way that users will put up with will be a bitch.

Why not just have it not prompt if you are changing settings, except for UAC settings? that would be the simple way 
around it
