    is vista + ie7 protected mode same as running in limited user account?

    When I use ie7 in vista in an administrator account, it says protected mode
    is on. Is this equivalent to running the browser in a limited user account?
    And does that mean no virus/malware can infect my PC even if I accidentally
    click on a malicious URL?

    No, you should still use limited accounts for surfing.
