Run a program without UAC

As Gator has suggested - creating an Elevated Shortcut using Task Scheduler works. Here's a list of shortcuts that I've created using that method and all of those programs will launch without a UAC prompt.

Currently I'm using software that replaces UAC entirely and there is an editable whitelist but unless you're an advanced user I wouldn't recommend using it! It's too easy to allow something that should be blocked and vice-versa.

Without going through both, Sevenforums tutorials have been edited and modified to reflect the absolute best ways to do everything. They were formed after doing stuff 1000's of times.

The first one I posted can only be used by an administrator, and the second one can be setup by an administrator for standard users (anyone) can use.
