Vista's Despised UAC Nails Rootkits, Tests Find
« on: May 26, 2008, 12:20:41 AM »
Love or hate its nagging prompts, Vista's Account Control feature (UAC) has a security feature that marks it out from any other type of Windows security programme -- it can spot rootkits before they install.

Maybe UAC isn't as bad as some people think.  :o
