# Windows 7: UAC prompt when running any administrative program

 11 Dec 2014 #1 Anixx Windows 7 235 posts UAC prompt when running any administrative program An UAC prompt started to appear at starting ANY administrative program, such as services.msc, compmgmt.msc, system restore and any other, even though in the UAC settings it is set not to ask UAC prompt for administering the computer. This happened after I did the files cleaunup by the Windows cleanup tool, and also unchecked file indexing in the C drive properties and anlso made system update. I do not know what exactly triggered it. What should I do to restore the normal behavior? I tried to restore the system, but received an error, even though I checked not to remove system restore points during the cleanup. The restore points are still visible, but I cannot roll back.

Normal behavior is when it does what it says. Currently it is set up not to notify when the user changes the settings. But it does. I do not want to disable UAC totally, I want it working in accordince with 2nd or 3rd security level. But it works as if I set 4th level. My System Specs
