Vista- the Secret Administrator Account: no more UAC pops.

By Oz_Media ·
For those admins here that are always downplaying Vista based on the UAC nags or how turning them off entirely is not a healthy choice, there is hope for you yet!
Vista contains a locked, hidden Administrator account that works from the root, and automatically disables UAC prompts, without turning them off for other/normal users.
