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
msconfig -> Tools -> Change UAC Settings -> Launch
or use group policy if they are domained make the setting automatic and standard

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.
