Windows 7: Rivatuner problem

06 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Rivatuner problem

I have RC1 x86 installed and a Geforce GTX260 graphic card. I use Rivatuner for fan-settings, OC and some monitoring.
I have this problem, that Rivatuner can't start by itself at boot, because UAC is comming with 2 warnings (one after the first is clicked OK). I have turned UAC down to the 2. lowest level, I have Rivatuner to run as Admin, I have tried to set marks in every possible place about security, but Rivatuner still generate these 2 warnings. I have the newest version.

How do I give this program (with plugins for monitoring) permission to run at boot?
I don't want to completely turn UAC off, if it can be avoided.

Rivatuner comes from here: RivaTuner

Try with Task scheduler:

- create basic task, give it a name "rivatuner"
- Set trigger as When I log on
- Set Action as Start a program
- Point Program to Program Files (x86)\RivaTuner v2.08\Rivatuner.exe
- Set Add Arguments to: -T
- check "Open the Properties dialog for this task when I click Finish", click finish
- Select "Run with highest privileges", OK

Rivatuner Fan Settings Resetting
So for some reason every time I restart the computer rivatuners settings default to direct control 30% even though I have auto control saved as the startup settings. How do I get this to stay on auto? Never had this problem in XP so I'm guessing it's a windows 7 thing.
