"In Windows 7 (and Vista), nothing runs as administrator until you tell it to. Giving your account Administrator privileges just gives you the right to use the ""Run as Administrator"" feature.

You can improve things a little bit by right-clicking on the program icon and selecting ""Run as Administrator"" on the Compatibility tab in the dialog box that opens. That's better than having to remember to run it as administrator every time you use it, but you should still see a prompt when the app starts asking you if it's okay to run the app as an administrator. If you turn off UAC the prompt will go away as well, but I don't recommend that."
