    User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode: Elevate without prompting
    User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for standard users: Automatically deny elevation requests
    User Account Control: Virtualize file and registry write failures to per-user locations: Disabled
    Pretty much you have UAC disabled much like I do.

    I've now also disabled User Account Control: Virtualize file and registry write failures to per-user locations

    It's not disabled, it's simply *denying* all the elevation requests for normal users, and failing writes when they try to use protected locations like program files. So you get the security for normal users, without the prompts.

    Sorry, what I meant was that I've set that particular policy to 'disabled' and understand the explnation/reasoning behind it.

    As good practice goes, it's good to see what others are implementing on their networks.
