VISTA User Accounts
What's up everyone? Need help understanding something. I know VISTA doesn't encourage you to run your machine in the FULL administrator mode, which is to help prevent malicious software from silently installing and causing infections on you machine. And thats why you run as a standard user with administration privileges, with the User Access Control security component prompting you for permission when you're performing a administration task. But what I don't understand is why would I need to be worried about running in the full admin mode, or even disabling the UAC security component as a standard user when my firewall would not allow malicious software from silently installing on my machine. Whats the point of the UAC, or not running in the Admin mode when you have a firewall protecting you from the the same harmful stuff? I mean that's what the firewall is there for in the first place right?
