I finally got to work on cleaning up a spyware-infested Vista machine. I have to say that the Apple commercial with the security guy is 10000% accurate. From running things in the control panel to running some applications, the screen turns dark gray (reminds me of the OS X Kernel Panic) and asks me to ok the task at hand. It does this CONSTANTLY. I tried to google UAC a bit to see if I could shut off UAC for certain apps if I ok'd them. Instead, I found numerous message boards and threads dedicated to the subject. I even read from "Unix gurus" who said the way UAC hounds the user to ok everything is "just like Unix." Now, I'm not a Unix guru, but I imagine that the way OS X handles things is the way Unix does, considering it's an official Unix now. Also, other people posted that OS X hounds the user the same way. Obviously, those people have 0 clue. I realize I'm preaching to the choir here, but how can anyone find UAC useful? Not only is it not useful, it's overly annoying AND the machine I fixed still had 100+ files of spyware/adware anyway. While I obviously prefer Mac to Windows any day, for Windows use, give me XP any day. XP is far better in every way and is my favorite version of Windows. Ok, now back to your regularly scheduled program.
