Cannot Elevate Privileges Temporarily on Standard User Account
So I have an administrator account for maintenance purposes and I also have my frequently used standard account.
Usually, when you right click on a program, for example: Spybot S&D
There is an option to "Run as Administrator".
And if you click it, it prompts for an admin password.
But for me, it does not ask for an admin password, it just ignores the fact that I clicked that completely, and runs it as a standard user.
This happens whenever I need admin privileges for something. I cannot elevate my privileges on a standard user account.
It used to work properly, until I changed my account type to standard, and enabled the Administrator account.
