What is the use of running application as an admin?

Is there any good reason in doing it?

I'm using windows 7 and some of my friends always telling me that when im going to run an application on my laptop, always run it as administrator.

Running application as an admin


If you are the administrator or you choose the admin account you its a special account for a number of reason, because this account will turn off some important security features for your computer and it is disabled by default in windows 7 and windows vista, its a bad idea to use administrator for anything for the reasons that you will be more safer you if will not use this account on your computer.

But most of us will use the administrator because of the former operating system on which they Didn't give the appropriate role of admin or standard limited account. there is the pros and cons on this type of account/ The User Account Control works by guarding access to administrative rights and it involves the user privilege on doing some task for the computer.

The limited or standard account does'nt have the power to perform administrative task while on the other hand the account with administrative rights will have to elevate to admin account in order to make changes on the computer system.
