Windows 7: Removing "Run As Administrator"...

06 Dec 2010   #21

Windows 7 x64 pro/ Windows 7 x86 Pro/ XP SP3 x86

Its only the older games or the badly coded ones that need admin privileges to run, I think. So would it be possible to say disable UAC temporarily and run the game inside sandboxie? I dont what overheads there would be to running like that or even whether the game will run, but it'll mitigate the security aspect to some extent.

Im not quite sure why it needs admin privileges , but combat arms in my opinion is not that good of a game :S. It is glitchy as well as ad based.
I have a few questions (I am asking from experience)

Have you noticed a decrease in grades?
Compulsive needs to play the game?
Does he have a lack of social life?

If yes to any of those maybe a break from the game would be in order at least until he can find an online game that does not need administrative privilege to play.
