    UAC Change

    I had previous set group policy so that everyone of our Windows 7 devices set the UAC to it's default level Default - Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer

    A number of people started reporting that they were now being prompted more often for their credentials.

    Comparing my machine to theirs, I noticed that their "Default" level is the "Always notify" option

    Does anyone know when the default level changed in Windows 7? If I move their setting down to the 2nd level, the wording is the box is actually different too

    Sorry, I think you may have both misunderstood. I know how to get to the UAC box, and I am perfectly comfortable changing the settings. But if you open up your own..does the "Default" option, (and I mean the Microsoft "Default", not what you may have set it to) sit on the 2nd option down?

    Most websites I can find say the 2nd option is the default. My issue is, a number of our users seemingly have Always notify listed as "Default" - it appears as if Microsoft changed what they deemed to be the default level.

    My Group policy - simply sets the default level, so although we both successfully get the same policy, it appears to give a different setting, as the level is different.
