I wanted to understand how disabling UAC would affect performance. I run as an administrator with UAC turned off and I NEVER see any delays. How do these delays manifest themselves? Do they affect "Standard User" and "Administrator" account types or only "Standard User" accounts.
Where can I read about these delays? I have done a cursory search on Google and found nothing.
Also, based on what I have been to reading everywhere and from what I have experienced, disabling UAC has the same effect as clicking on "Allow" when the UAC box pops up. Based on that, how can there be a performance slow down?
Maybe I see no delays because I have UAC enabled but set to "Elevate without Prompting".
Regardless, please point me to a technical document that explains these delays...
