    Hi I'm sure all you techs know this, but maybe there are some members that don't know this. I'm posting this here. Please move if needed!
    I think it is very good information and another layer of security. This makes it a little harder for the bad guys. They are every where these days!
    By default programs run with the same privileges and rights as the active user account. This is very convenient for malware if the user is using an admin account as it can do pretty much anything it wants to. If the user is using a limited account that is bad news for malware as it will be under the constraints of the limited account. Much malware will give up. There are always easier targets elsewhere.
