Windows 7: By-passing windows UAC window on particular programs ?

By-passing windows UAC window on particular programs ?

This concerns 2 programs occasionally recommended in the forums but has more to due with Windows than the programs themselves...

Is there a way in Win 7 Pro 64bit to eliminate the UAC pop up window when running either CCleaner or Defraggler ? I have tried running as administrator but still get the pop ups ?

Doesn't work very well when CCleaner runs at start-up...have to click the UAC window before I can continue ?

Thanks...TRinAZ

Have you tried this. It will work for startup items as well with the right options checked in Task Scheduler
Oops, forgot the link but super mod beat me to it anyways

I have used the posted method for cmd and noted that the window is not active when it comes up. Have to click on it to activate. That is not a big problem, but just note that fact. It may be different with other programs.

As of yesterday, I am using this PowerBroker Desktop Evaluation - User Account Control - Elevated Privileges . It is free for a local user and works really well. Learning curve is semi-steep but it does alot more than just elevate apps without UAC prompt/credentials. The UI of it is actually accessed from within gpedit.msc where rules are made under the Beyond Trust heading. I do like the way it makes the UAC consent invisible for apps that have a rule creation but I may not stay with this Standard account. My other account is Admin, UAC prompt for credentials. I see very little difference from a security standpoint of one as opposed to the other. I know there is but I see it as being marginal at best with what I do from day to day. Having said that, I will more than likely roll the Standard account off and continue with protected Admin which means the Task Scheduler shortcut method works well enough for me

Yeah, I think that's just the task executing.

It is. If you run a batch file, you will get two of them to pop up real quick. I have two batch files for turning SRP off and and back on when installing software from another drive. It's much quicker than going through Local Security. The app I mentioned earlier makes those screens not to appear.
