Windows 7: Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create

How can I get a "How to Create a Elevated Program Shortcut without a UAC Prompt" to work with a standard user. I get four UAC prompts each time any of the standard users log in. They are all safe UAC messages but they are not only frustrating and take up menu bar space. The standard user don't have the admin password.

New ASUS 64 bit running Windows 7 Home.

Thanks.

Hello Cofeelvr, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but this will not work with a standard user.

Why do we have those messages if there is not way to deal with them?

The purpose of a UAC prompt is to ask the administrator to allow or deny a program that wants to run elevated (run as administrator) first. This is a last line of defense security feature to help prevent elevated programs from running without the administrator knowing it. It cannot be changed.

Since it requires administrator approval, a standard user just does not have the authority to do it unless they enter the administrator's password in the UAC prompt. A standard user will always get a UAC prompt if UAC is turned on. If UAC is turned off, then the standard user will get a "access denied" message instead.

The four messages that each standard user receives at login are:

Helper Tool for run ASUS Backup Wizard
AsLoader.exe
FourEngine.exe
UpdateChecker MFC Application

The standard users do not have the admin password so is there a way that these four can be excluded or bypass the message? If the standard users select no will that have an adverse affect on the system?

Also, are they even needed? If not, how to I take them out?

Ah, I see. Yes, you can use METHOD FOUR in the tutorial below to remove these startup programs from the "All Users" section.

Before you do, be sure that you have a shortcut of the one's that you want to remove placed in each user's Startup Folder (METHOD ONE) that you still want to have running at startup for.

Startup Programs - Change

Hope this helps,

You're welcome.

The processes for these programs will not run in the background for the standard user. After Googling them, it looks like the standard user will not need them anyway.

The programs do not show up in the right panel so I cannot complete method four. Any suggestions?

If the programs are not listed in either registry location in Method Four, then also check using the other methods (ex: Startup folder) to see if they may be listed there instead.
