Agreed...while UAC is not bullet-proof, it was a step in the right direction when it was first introduced.

Good call on Sanboxie. I absoultly love this program. I've been running it on my system for quite a while and I'm very happy with it. I set it up on my grandma's PC (WinXP) about a year ago since she has a habbit of clicking on pretty much anything that blinks. No suprise she ends up with all kinds of crap on her computer. Since I setup Sandboxie, she's had ZERO issues with any sort of malware.
