Windows 7: Run this program as an administrator

Run this program as an administrator

I have the following problem with Windows 7. The Program does not want to start without Admin privilege. After each start programm automatically use Admin privilege (another words "Run this program as an administrator") on Standard User. The main disadvantage, I cannot remove "Run this program as an administrator" due to Standard User. Under Administrator account shows that this program does not use "Run this program as an administrator". I have tried to remove HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers program from this list, but after few hours everything begins from the beginnig.( Automatically restore key). In order to resolve this problem I have to delete program from this list HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers again.

What can you recommend me to resolve this problem.

Thank you for your help.

Hello Aidoom,

You might see if you can use the tutorial below to resolve this. You can create the shortcut in the tutorial in your administrator account and copy it to the standard account to be used.

Thank for your answer and for usefull tutorial. Probably, I am not enough good explain the situation. The main purpose to make work program under Standard User without administrator level. Because program works very good without administrative account, but every restart makes programm to start up with Admin privelege and I have to enter Admin password. I would like to remove Admin privilege for this program without restoring in Registry.

Oh, I see. It's a startup program that runs as administrator and asks for UAC at startup.


You can use Method Two in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below to create a task in Task Scheduler to run the program at startup instead. Be sure to set the program to Run with highest privileges so that it will run at startup without UAC for all accounts.

Afterwards, be sure to remove this program from the normal startup programs list.

No, It's not startup program. It just common program. From my point of view program are not compabitible with Windows 7.

My apologies Aidoom. I misunderstood what and how it was being used.

What program is this? Perhaps someone here that is also using it may know of a solution for this same problem with it.

Have you already tried creating the shortcut in the above post in the administrator account, and copying it into the standard account to see it works properly in the standard account? I know that you would prefer it to not run as an administrator due to the standard account, but the shortcut should allow it to run as administrator in the standard account without getting the UAC prompt.

The name of this program is Full TIll Poker. I am just want to understand such strange behaviour of this program. I do not have enough experince in Windows 7 and I would like to know is it normal that program automatically run as administrator after first start(another words try to use administrative privilege after each launch).

P.S No, I haven't still tried creating the shotcut, but I will try ASAP. Thank you

I run full tilt poker without any problems. I downloaded it and just ran as adminmistrator. And attached it to my quick start bar and it runs with 1 click. So I don't know why you are having a problem with it. How did you install it? It also installed then updated without any compatibility probems.

Thank you for your reply. How I understood. Full Till Poker runs with administrative privilege. The my purpose run this program under Standard user without any Administrative privelege, because I do not want to enter password each time when I started it. Otherwise thanks to Brink I have to use tutorial in order to run program under Administrator with highest privileges without entering password each time when start.
