That is excellent work (better than my idea about using a batch file)!

I have discovered that you can start multiple programs using a batch file.
If those programs require Admin rights, you can just set the batch file to "Run as Administrator" and all the programs appear to run as Admin, without having to authorise each one individually.

My monitor programs all require Admin rights to run correctly and the batch file I created starts them with Admin rights. Unfortunately I can't run it using the "Startup" folder.

It should be possible to create a batch file which combines Priority level with Admin rights.

Once again, excellent work (I have clicked your Rep button).

Hello Lehnerus,

It is possible to run a program at startup (either machine or user) in Admin mode without the UAC prompt by the use of the task scheduler. This would I think do what you want.

I'm sure that Shawn has written a tutorial for this (It's early here and my brain is in start-up mode so cannot find it at the moment ), if you check out the tutorial section I'm sure there is something there.

You could also use this method to start each of your programs with more control as to when they start (adding delays or conditions)

Hope this helps

I recall reading something about that on another blog.
I did try following their suggestions but I couldn't get it to work correctly (in build 7100).

I haven't been able to perfect using the Task Scheduler to do stuff for me.
I normally put my PC to "Sleep", instead of leaving it running or shutting it down.
I had to create a task to run my AV program.
I discovered that I needed to run a task, before my AV task, to wake the PC up.
That task is supposed to terminate after 2hrs but it doesn't (It worked properly in build 7100 so maybe my install is dodgy or I have screwed up the settings).

I also discovered that some of my programs were adding tasks, which weren't being removed when they were updated or deleted.

You should be careful changing the priority level of processes. It can have a severe negative draw back. Only change the priority above normal on a select few processes. And never use realtime priority level the computer can become really unusable very quickly. The mouse for example must have access to the CPU now and then, the realtime priority level can conflict with that.

The task scheduler in Windows 7 is a very powerful tool and is used by Microsoft themselves for many of the system control operations for keeping the system operating.

Unfortunately, this power does bring with it a certain complexity, I have had some success with it's use but would always try other methods if at all possible, first.

The same applies to the Powershell that is supplied with the higher SKU's - the reason that so many command line programs are still available - which allows a sysadmin to script virtually anything they can desire.

There are specialist forums and blogs for it's use on the net - It may be worthwhile having a search around as many provide code snippets for free to perform many tasks

Agreed.
Remember to Backup your system, BEFORE messing around with "Advanced" settings, in case of disaster.
