Features of Administrator account in Windows® 7
An administrator password in Windows 7 is the password to any account that is setup to access administrator level functions in Windows 7. This does not actually have to be an Administrator user account, when you need this password. Depending on how Windows 7 was setup on your computer, the primary user account can also be an administrator user account, especially if you installed Windows 7 on your computer yourself. The users that have accounts on your Windows 7 computer, may be setup with administrator access. They recover the administrator password using a Windows password recovery tool. It performs a clean install of Windows 7.
An applications written with the assumption that the user will be running with administrator privileges experienced problems in earlier versions of Windows. When it was run from limited user accounts, problems occured because they attempted to write to machine-wide or system directories or registry keys. UAC attempts to alleviate this using File and Registry Virtualization, which redirects writes to a per-user location within the user’s profile. This installation completely removes Windows 7 from your PC and install it again from scratch.
Computer windows that are running elevated will prefix the title of the window with the word "Administrator", so that a user can discern which instances are running with elevated privileges. There is a distinction made between elevation requests from a signed executable and an unsigned executable. The color, icon, and wording of the prompts are different in each work.
Protected Mode feature uses UAC to run with a low integrity level. The standard user token has an integrity level of medium. It effectively runs in a box, unable to write to most of the system apart from the Temporary Internet Files folder. Since toolbars and ActiveX controls run within the Internet Explorer process, they will run with low privileges as well.
