Running Windows with Least Privilege

One of the the Tech-Ed sessions that I didn't get to attend but heard good things about was "Tips and Tricks to Running Windows with Least Privilege." Fortunately, Microsoft has made this session available as a webcast. This is extremely helpful for admins that currently give their users local admin rights. That is always a security risk and this session shows how you can avoid that but still provide the functionality that users need.
