Windows 7: How do I start a program at boot without UAC prompt?

How do I start a program at boot without UAC prompt?

So I followed a tutorial on howtogeek here:

Create Administrator Mode Shortcuts Without UAC Prompts in Windows 7 or Vista

I want to start RealTemp at startup, but I don't want to have to deal with the UAC every single time it startsup.

CCleaner is able to do the same thing with Task Scheduler. However, when I create the Task for RealTemp it doesn't work. RealTemp runs on startup, process manager shows that it's running but it doesn't show up anywhere. There's no GUI and it's not in the System Tray where I expect it to be.

How do I accomplish this task?

Alternatively, if there is other software that will display system temps (except SpeedFan) and start in the system tray sans UAC I'll happily switch, I'm in no way attached to RealTemp.

Startup folder

If the app is set to auto-start from within the GUI you can try unchecking that option then copy the shortcut into your startup folder:

Or you can use a batch file using the scheduled task name and place the batch file in the same startup folder:

Launch a program on boot - delayed, with no UAC.

Although currently I've ditched that method and use Autorun Organizer instead. Only recommended for advanced users.

As you can see the elevated task name has been added and set to start delayed on boot.

Thanks Callender.

As soon as I saw your reply I realized that I made a very big mistake.

I need to ask this question on 8 Forums. I need this help on Windows 8.1.

My fault.

No problem. As far as I know creating an elevated shortcut in Windows 8 Startup folder should do the trick!
