Possibly. It's been years since it was a real problem. There are a few annoying programs hard-wired to launch IE when they need to spawn a browser to go online, but that's a nuisance more than anything else.

Can an already installed program in Vista be set to run automatically as administrator afterwards? I know I can right click and choose "Run as administrator", but can it happen always no matter how I launch it?
I believe that's possible. I don't run Vista here -- I'm still on XP Pro -- but you should be able to modify the properties of the shortcut pointing to it to specify that.

Hopefully over time the security issues will be greatly reduced as programs start to match the Vista paradigm. But until XP goes away, there's really not much incentive.
I don't expect XP to go away for some time. Microsoft has already had to extend the date at which XP would be unsupported, and had to modify their forecasts of the amount of revenue from XP upward. Lots of folks (like me) have no plans to move until there is no choice. (And when I do move, it might be Linux.)
