Vista, UAC, and the command like junkie

So I log in with a Joe Schmoo, non-admin account to a Vista machine. In Task Manager, I go to the Processes tab and it only shows a subset of processes – not all user processes. To show process from all users, it requires administrative rights, as indicated by the button at the bottom with the UAC icon.

So instead, I go to a Command Prompt, type the command tasklist, and there’s a listing of all processes that are running from all users.

Great consistency there…
