    No. And such major features are never back-ported.

    Default Vista UAC Security Feature in Windows XP with suDown

    The purpose of the suDown Project is to make using low privileged accounts in Windows XP* easier which is an effective security layer against harmful virus, worm, trojan or spyware software. If some malicious program manages
    to get past your security programs or break in through an unpatched security hole of your web browser, email client or operating system it still finds itself in an unfriendly low privileged environment where the possibilities of replicating and doing harm are quite limited.

    well, this sudown app is very helpful and effective for the XP users to stop some security threats....but i think it is not as effective as UAC of vista.....

    Just make a standard acc and right click n choose Run as <User> everytime, need to do admin tasks...but its too annoying to type password everytime.....

    So stick with Windows Vista and Windows 7. UAC has its own importance to protect PCs.
