Users who routinely run as a limited user may therefore be led to believe that no updates are available when in fact there are. There are cases where the current behaviour is good. However, additional options, such as the following, should be added: 1) An option to notify the LUA user of an update, but then state that an Administrator is required to log on to install the update OR 2) Present a dialog box prompting for Administrator credentials to install the update similiar to "RunAs" or sudo. In addition, I've noticed that the "Update" options in Options -> Advanced tab are still available for LUA users! Surely these options should be ghosted out if LUA accounts are unable to receive update notifications or install updates. Currently, this gives the LUA user a false sense of security. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Log on as a Limited User Actual Results: See "Details" above. Expected Results: See "Details" above. See "Details" above.
