    any tips on running LUA in win7 box?

    I'm thinking of installing all apps/drivers via "run as admin". wondering if this is a good idea?

    thank you

    most installers should ask you for admin rights from a uac prompt anyway.
    I havent had any issues right clicking run as admin on any installers that dont.
    try running the installer as normal first.

    Most installers do not require you to run them as admin. I run an LUA account with no password, and an admin account with a password. When I try to install a program, UAC will prompt me for my admin account password. There are a few installers that say they require to be run on an account with admin privileges. In these cases, I do right-click, run as admin.
