    Could you please elaborate more? I am afraid that I don't understand why.
    If your machine is compromised using AA, the attacker has full access to your system. You limit the damage using SUA.


    "Starting from Windows Vista the users, even those who are members of the local admin group, cannot be the administrators constantly. This is so that the users do not cause any damage to the system by accident or by malicious intent. "

    Of course sophisticated malware won't care much, but better have it than nothing.
