Description     

 

Security impact

1

Always notify

1.            You'll be notified before programs make changes to your computer or to Windows settings that require administrator permissions

2.            When you're notified, your desktop will be dimmed, and you must either approve or deny the request in the UAC dialog box before you can do anything else on your computer. The dimming of your desktop is referred to as the secure desktop because other programs can't run while it's dimmed.

1.            This is the most secure setting.

2.            When you're notified, you should carefully read the contents of each dialog box before allowing changes to be made to your computer

2

Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer

1.            You'll be notified before programs make changes to your computer that require administrator permissions.

2.            You won't be notified if you try to make changes to Windows settings that require administrator permissions.

3.            You'll be notified if a program outside of Windows tries to make changes to a Windows setting.

1.            It's usually safe to allow changes to be made to Windows settings without you being notified. However, certain programs that come with Windows can have commands or data passed to them, and malicious software can take advantage of this by using these programs to install files or change settings on your computer. You should always be careful about which programs you allow to run on your computer.

3

Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer (do not dim my desktop)

1.            You'll be notified before programs make changes to your computer that require administrator permissions.

 

2.            You won't be notified if you try to make changes to Windows settings that require administrator permissions.

 

3.            You'll be notified if a program outside of Windows tries to make changes to a Windows setting.

1.            This setting is the same as "Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer," but you're not notified on the secure desktop.

 

2.            Because the UAC dialog box isn't on the secure desktop with this setting, other programs might be able to interfere with the visual appearance of the dialog box. This is a small security risk if you already have a malicious program running on

4

Never Notify

1.            You won't be notified before any changes are made to your computer. If you're logged on as an administrator, programs can make changes to your computer without you knowing about it.

 

2.            If you're logged on as a standard user, any changes that require the permissions of an administrator will automatically be denied.

 

3.            If you select this setting, you'll need to restart the computer to complete the process of turning off UAC. Once UAC is off, people that log on as administrator will always have the permissions of an administrator.

1.            This is the least secure setting. When you set UAC to never notify, you open up your computer to potential security risks.

2.            If you set UAC to never notify, you should be careful about which programs you run, because they'll have the same access to the computer as you do. This includes reading and making changes to protected system areas, your personal data, saved files, and anything else stored on the computer. Programs will also be able to communicate and transfer information to and from anything your computer connects with, including the Internet.



Windows User Accounts, Types and how to manage

What is a user accounts in Windows-A user account is a collection of information or a number instructions stored in the computer which tells Windows which files and folders a user can access, what type of changes he can make to the computer, and his personal preferences, like as your desktop personalization or screen saver settings. User accounts let you share a computer with several people, while having your own files and settings. Each person accesses his or her user account with a user name and password.
There are three types of accounts categorized on different level of control he has over the computer:

(1)   Standard accounts are for everyday computing.
(2)  Administrator accounts provide the total control over a computer including removal of users, and should only be used when necessary.
(3)   Guest accounts are intended primarily for people who need temporary use of a computer.


What is a standard user account in Windows

A standard user account lets a person use most of the capabilities of the computer, but permission from an administrator is required if he want to make changes that affecting other users or the security of the computer. When you use a standard account, you can use most programs that are installed on the computer, but you can't install or uninstall software and hardware, delete files that are required for the computer to work, or change settings on the computer that affect other users. If you're using a standard account, some programs might require you to provide an administrator password before you can perform certain tasks.


What is an administrator account in Windows

An administrator account is also a user account but lets you make any type of changes affecting other users. Administrators can change security settings, install software and hardware, and access all files on the computer. Administrators can also make changes to other user accounts.
When you set up Windows, you'll be required to create a user account. This account is an administrator account that allows you to set up your computer and install any programs that you would like to use. Once you have finished setting up your computer, you must use a standard user account for your day-to-day computing. It's more secure to use a standard user account instead of an administrator account.

Why use a standard user account instead of an administrator account

The standard account can help protect your computer by preventing users from making changes that affect everyone who uses the computer, such as deleting files that are required for the computer to work. Always create a standard account for each user.
When you are logged on to Windows with a standard account, you can do almost anything that you can do with an administrator account, except something that affects other users of the computer, such as installing software or changing security settings, Windows might ask you to provide a password for an administrator account.
