2012-01-31 Disabling security is not a solution

Post date: Jan 31, 2012 8:35:53 PM

A support technician recently "solved" a problem on one of our workstations by disabling UAC. UAC is one of those things that doesn't solve everything, but it adds a little security. Turning it off because you don't know how to make your software work otherwise is not a solution. I'll grant you that if you need to turn it off to get it installed and leave it on, I can understand, but turning off our security does not belong on the fix list.
