I've been running my Windows install as a non-admin user, but it's gotten to be too much of a pain, prompting me to switch to admin. Yeah, I know I shouldn't; but with RunAs not always doing its job, and no framework for privilege granting like sudo on *nix... It's just much easier to handle things as superuser. So, for the rest of you guys running Windows... Do you run as admin, or as a restricted user? - If you're on WinXP or older, and you're not running as admin - how do you handle it? - If you're on Vista or 7 and you're running as admin - why?
