There is no way to run Win 8 as a limited user as it will drive you insane very quickly. It is FAR WORSE than even Vista in regards to UAC.
For Vista users, if you can find a copy of Norton Labs' UAC Tool somewhere, it works well, because it includes a check-box in the window for UAC to remember that a program is allowed, so you don't get repeated warnings about it every time you reopen the program. I've been using it for years on both computers - much less hassle than the original Windows UAC yet still does the job. It never went beyond the Labs' development, and from what I've read, doesn't work well on Win7 and beyond.--
