Frustrating Privileges

Getting confused and frustrated with the Windows Vista Privileges? I discovered that (I think) you need to reboot after you change your security policy. You set your security policy in Administrative Tools:Local Security Policy, and my administrative-mode settings are like this:
Accounts: Administrator account status	Enabled
Accounts: Guest account status	Enabled
Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only	Enabled
Accounts: Rename administrator account	Administrator
Accounts: Rename guest account	Guest
System objects: Require case insensitivity for non-Windows subsystems	Enabled
System objects: Strengthen default permissions of internal system objects (e.g. Symbolic Links)	Enabled
System settings: Optional subsystems	Posix
System settings: Use Certificate Rules on Windows Executables for Software Restriction Policies	Disabled
User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account	Not Defined
User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode	Prompt for consent
User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for standard users	Prompt for credentials
User Account Control: Detect application installations and prompt for elevation	Enabled
User Account Control: Only elevate executables that are signed and validated	Disabled
User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode	Enabled
User Account Control: Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation	Enabled
If you disable prompting for elevation, you will not get prompted, but yo will not get elevated privileges either!
