    Set Admin Privileges

    Giving yourself full time admin privileges isn't really a good idea in a modern OS.

    One problem (among others) is that giving yourself full time admin privileges also gives them to all software you run. For trustworthy software you want to run that isn't a big problem. But you may also end up running software you do not want to run, software that has evil intentions towards you and your computer. In todays world that is almost impossible to avoid. If it is running under an admin account it has almost unlimited access to your computer and can do whatever it wants. Any rights it does not have it can give itself. Don't assume that your anti virus software will always protect you. Malware authors are working very hard to circumvent this protection and are getting quite good at it.

    Running with UAC enabled (the default condition) doesn't make this impossible but it does make it more difficult. It is another layer of protection. Good security always consists of multiple layers of protection because a single layer may be circumvented.

    Edit: A full time admin account is a convenience. I will not deny that. UAC is a reasonable compromise between convenience and security, an issue which is becoming more problematic as each day pases. Security always has it's price.

    I understand all the risks, but it still doesn't answer my question.
