Windows 7 User Account Control is a good idea. Stops the less savvy among us from installing or attempting to install something horrible and does a decent job of it. Unfortunately, it disables any remote input when it launches, effectively negating the effectiveness of remote tools such as TeamViewer and LogMeIn. With the Jedi Admin tool, you just log into a remote system, launch the Jedi Admin and continue about your work. Since anything you launch with Jedi is already running with elevated credentials, you don't get the annoying show-stopping UAC popup.
