Try typing UAC in search and setting to never.

Not recommended, but you can try if you want.

Microsfot always have to choose between security ans usability.
In this case by default Microsoft gave security more priority.

ok, anyway...
Try this:
User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Turn off UAC

Hi Fayska, Welcome to SF,

You have to do this because of in-build feature called User Account Control.

It's a very good feature . In this way, only applications trusted by the user may receive administrative privileges, and malware should be kept from compromising the operating system. We strongly recommend not to turn off.

For each the shortcut Right Click and Go To Properties then go to the Tab which says Compatibility and check on Run as administrator so from next time by default it would run as administrator. Then is your willing to take a risk then Turn the UAC off.

Follow this article User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Hope this helps,

Hi friends

Ok, you have good answers but in the meanwhile i've already done that, captain jack what i want is to run all the exe to run as administrator all in once and to turn severall let's see nero for example has almost ten principal executable files and there are certain programs like labview and other with severall aplications this takes a lot of time doing to each exe file, exe-1, exe-2, exe-3... it's a pain in the a**

Another question, in win 7 doing that didn't erase the litle shield icon on some programs, i would like to see the icons without that, you can see on the atachments.

Thanks for your help...
