Its just for an extra protection. Its even in XP. always it'll asks a warning "Run these type of programs". Microsoft decided to embed a antivirus like program into its OS, so only they put these type of warnings.
But if you have observed for a normal user, while installations, very few give passwords for ADMINISTRATOR login, in the end of the installation, WINDOWS another USER ID and ask you every time to log in using that password only. If you set up a password for your account only, still ADMINISTRATOR account is password-less. Sometimes it may be risky.
This is not correct. During the installation of XP it asks us to set the password for administrator account too. May be u would have downloaded some OS in the net which will be packed with TROJAN, which would have disabled the password request window during the installation.
