Hello Experts - I have a general question about how Windows 7 handles commands that require administrative permissions.  When logged on as a non-admin user and attempting to do something like run msconfig most times I get a prompt after running the command asking for administrative credentials.  On some machines I never get the prompt, just an access denied message.  What controls whether the OS prompts for credentials or just denies the action?

User Access Control (UAC) normally defines that.
