Windows 7: How do I avoid disabling the UAC?

How do I avoid disabling the UAC?

Hi,
I think the UAC is a good idea, but I had to disable it because
- it pops up at startup for the programs that I manually put in autostart (like CrystalCPUID, Rivatuner)
- when I work with files I have to confirm my actions all the time.

Basically, how do I get the UAC to ignore certain applications? Is there an exceptions-list?

Thanks in advance!

You can use Task Scheduler to run programs at startup with highest privileges.

Task Scheduler - Create Task - Vista Forums

They should start without UAC intervening.

As for programs you run yourself - there is no whitelisting.

May be better to stop UAC prompting admins.

User Account Control (UAC) - Elevate Privilege Level - Vista Forums

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin"=dword:00000000

To restore to default:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin"=dword:00000002

Thanks, but then we effectively have the same situation as in XP and the UAC is quite useless. Too bad...
