Hey adblock user! Would you mind whitelisting us? We don't run pre-roll or even post-roll adverts on our videos and it would really help us cover our costs. Without advertising revenue we couldn't bring you any content and we really don't feel our ads spoil the site at all. Thank you!
As stated in the video, UAC really comes into its own when used in conjunction with limited user accounts. If you want to set up limited user accounts on a Windows 7 machine, see this video.
