Thanks for the tip, Shawn. I'll give it a whirl this evening and let you know if it works.

It didn't. But as it turns out, I was able to configure a profile in NVIDIA nForce's control panel, and have it run at Windows startup. For some reason the stock fan speed on my NIVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT graphics card was only 30%. It ran at 71 degrees celcius on a cool day. Too hot for my taste. So I upped it to 75% fan speed, and now it runs 10 degrees cooler. I was able to uninstall MSI Afterburner. Always a huge plus when you don't have to run additional software.

Hey Brink I don't know what the heck is going on, but I can't get this thing to work for the life of me

I've followed the instructions to the letter, double checked to make sure I had admin priviladges and even added my "user/login" name to the accout settings, and still this fix isn't working. Why, I have no idea???

Frustrated

PS - The program(s) I'm trying to run is Core Temp, next would be CPU-Z

Thanks

Hello Drew,

What program are you trying to do this for?

It will not work for standard account in case that is what you are trying.

Guess you didn't see my PS - Core Temp.

And so I'm clear, what do you mean by "standard account" ??? I'm the only user on this machine so I should have admin rights. What am I missing?

At any rate I got it working. Turns out the drive that the program is on didn't have my user accout name, once I added myself it worked.

BTW I've found instances where I had to add my user name to other drives/partitions because of issues like this, even though I have full admin rights. Can you tell me why that is or point me in a direction to find out.



I had to do this for my "K" drive as well. (add "Andrew")

Thanks.

Ah, I see now. On some programs this may just not work depending on how they were written. I couldn't get it to work on Core Temp myself.

I was just referring to trying to use the elevated shortcut created in this tutorial while logged in a standard user account instead of an adminsitrator account on your computer.

Since your default Andrew administrator account is part of the Adminsitrators group, you should have the same permissions as what is set for that group and not need to add your separate user account.

Shawn, isn't there a way to always logon as Administrator? If so, what are the pros & cons of using that setting?

Max,

Yes, you could set an administrator user account to be automatically logged on to at startup if you like to.

Log On Automatically at Startup

A con would be that if you have other users, they would have access to that account as well since it is there at every startup of Windows 7 as well.
