Of course I have admin rights on my machine. I run Visual Studio .NET 2003 occasionally, which requires admin rights just to run under Win7. I'm responsible for our installers, which also require admin rights. I'm also the DSJB(*), which means I keep our source control and build servers running, so I also have admin rights on those machines.

Every time this topic has come up with our corporate IT organization, I've told them that removing my admin rights will make it impossible to do my job and bring product development to a screeching halt. That plus the fact the IT yabbos have never been able to fault any of my group's access to admin rights, makes this a non-issue.
