Same as it was in Windows XP: if a user is admin, all program they execute, run with admin privileges. Either way, for a computer literate person it's not necessarily a horrible thing (it's still pretty damn stupid), but for someone that isn't particularly engaged with technology it's a very bad Is it an American thing? Early Microsoft home operating-systems (such as MS-DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows Me) did not have a concept of different user-accounts on the same machine.
It looks like rundll32 will lose its autoelevation (hopefully this will ship in the RC), so I don't know what they'll do about the extra prompts this'll reintroduce. Whenever the UAC prompt appears, Secure Desktop dims the screen and redirects both screens to the built-in monitor several seconds later. That de facto boundary is gone in build 7000, and it's not clear that it will be reinstated in later builds. Truth is, I don't get a lot of prompts asking me to elevate, and those that I do get are legitimate.

The ones that are flagged to run as Admin run full blown without a prompt, but it doesn't elevate Word 2010 for example. Kinda relevant. One way this could be done is to create rundllsecure.exe that has the same functionality as rundll32, except that it will refuse to load unsigned DLLs.
