    Alright. <=3 Installs tend to be the major thing that triggers it. Just remember that if UAC appears and it's by a program you don't think should be doing anything / a program you have no idea, say NO D= Basically UAC is good for when you're dealing with programs you don't trust/don't know.

    *Squished and hugs again* <=3 You're welcome. It's so much nicer to hug and share a few laughs than be all sour, am I right?

    Aw. :3 *squish* Thanks for being so understanding <3

    I see. o.O I just thought UAC was another bit of Microsoft's WE SEE WHAT YOU DID THAR programming, not a security thing. I used Vista throughout my first two years of university, and sometimes I just wanted to kerb-stomp the damn thing. >: I mean, it even triggered when I installed Microsoft Office (legal, lmao). But if it's improved for 7, I'll just work on toning it down on mum's laptop.

    Oh... it's okay! *She reachs out and embraces you in a niiiice warm hug* There we go! All better! ^.^ UAC was tweaked in Windows 7 to make it less strict by default. Basically UAC pops up whenever a program does something that requires admin mode, which was something XP always ran in. That's why XP is a bit insecure in comparison. Basically, if you're downloading open source / free shiz and it's not from a particularly trustworthy site or one you don't know of or it looks seedy etc, but UAC doesn't pop up, that's a good sign it's safe.

    Essentially any software can be programmed around UAC to make it so that it doesn't pop up. Chrome doesn't trigger UAC, and I believe Firefox has started working on that too.

    But yeah, I understand how you feel. It's nothing personal, hun. Lots of love, and stuff~<3 x3

    Hey, I just wanted to apologise. I got really het up earlier on the Windows/Mac thread when really it's all just a question of taste. And to think I chide football fans for being defensive of their teams >_> So yeah, sorry. And I'm going to check out UAC because my mum is a noob at not-installing dodgy programs.
