Good point.  I think UAC is going away.  I like running with 
protections, but that cache-and-don't-tell maneuver was really B.S.  Why 
not just issue a write error if I don't have permission to change a 
file?  The mind truly boogles.

I have enough virus scanners and firewalls and script blockers and 
whatnot on my development machine that I feel ok about it.  I can't 
remember one time that UAC has actually warned about something that I 
really didn't want to run.  I'm sure the virus scanner will pick up 
anything that slips through the cracks.

Thanks for the info.
