Now that is strange that it would gray that option out, yet still have it work. Tutorial updated to have both unchecked.

I agree that it is strange, and I wouldn't have checked except that I've had that greying out bite me before.

After reading this thread I ran across a program called "UAC Controller Tool" by ITknowledge2 which lets you create a UAC whitelist. I thought someone here might be interested. But just so you know, I haven't tested or even installed the program yet. I wanted to post here first to get some feedback, not only if anyone has used this program but if using it will create a hole in security.

Edit: Turns out the website that originally said this program created a whitelist was wrong... it doesn't. It only provides an easier way to change the UAC settings. Sorry for the confusion.

I just installed it.

I don't see where you can create a whitelist, you can change the settings right from

the notification area without a restart, and it works for that. I don't know about the security aspect though.

I just installed it and you're right. I went back to look where I got the idea of a whitelist and found the original post where it was mentioned, that poster said it created a whitelist... but you're correct, it doesn't. So basically it makes it easierto change the UAC setting but nothing more. Sorry for misleading everyone.

That's alright, it has it's uses. you don't need to restart every time you change settings.

You can post it with a link to it here

Greetings all, I have a question, please...

I did this for a program I have that loads at startup. It's called "Green Button" by Verbatim - it's an energy saver spin-down utility for portable USB drive. I deleted the link from the start up folder, and replaced it with a new one created from the first part of the tutorial (thanks Brink), and for good measure I did the second part of the tutorial (.bat) - thanks OEM.

Problem - it still prompts for uac. I don't know whether this has anything to do with it, but even though the program loads at boot, it cannot be seen in the sys tray - only on connection of the portable USB drive.

Any ideas?
Regards D

Hello Allen,

When you did the BAT option in the post below the tutorial, did you use the path to the shortcut created in the tutorial when creating the BAT file and only placed the BAT file in the Startup folder?

Solved it - I uninstalled / reinstalled it. I don't know why, but 2 or 3 uac windows would pop up on connect, so now everything A-OK!
