I've now noticed that UAC, when installing a lot of programs, it does not prompt me. It stays minimized and I have to click the icon in the taskbar for it to prompt.

No UAC here. When I installed I switched to the hidden admin account from the get-go.

I wont install it, there is apparently some issue with my license and a specific update, I have the case and everything with my license, and microsoft support said the key is legitimate, but some reason this update (addresses cracked win7 copies) is affecting my machine 0.o I should be getting a new key and the old one deactivated for good in about a month, till then, I am chill.
