    Well, as you can see that is a defunct blog... Is this debate about how Microsoft misrepresented UAC in the Vista timeframe or is it about UAC and the distinction between running as a standard user by default and core security boundaries of the underlying system? This is an argument about the past, right? Sure, OK, the UAC blog, Windows blogs, media outlets, even Channel 9, misrepresented UAC as a security feature during the Vista daze. Can we move along? Can we focus on the here and now? DeVaan's post is from 2009. The context is Windows 7. I've lost track of the problem, exactly. What's the issue again?


    If the application that does the code injection needs to pass a UAC prompt before it can be installed, the users agrees the application is trust wordy so it does not need to prompt when it is doing admin stuff?

    Am I right? Or doens't the applcation doing the injection need a UAC prompt to install? It doens't need one to boot in any UAC mode i guess because otherwise we would not have this discussion.
