LOL, there you go. That would be best so that you do not give everything full access.

Excellent... Works like a charm

I have CCleaner set to run on startup but the UAC pop us was a pain.
With your tutorial and a little help from the 'Startup Control Panel' freeware I was able to edit the startup so that CCleaner runs with announcing itself.

Thanks you.

Hi Shawn

Another very clear and easy to follow tutorial. This method also works to open a file. That lets me get straight into my MYOB account in one click instead of going through the UAC system every time.

Many thanks
Clive

Hi - I think you answered this before but I want to clarify.

Would this trick work so that I am not asked for the Admin password? I have an app that requires UAC prompt and password under the limited user account. I want this app available to all users but do not want them to input the admin password. I cannot find a workaround this. I have W7 Home Premium x64. thx

Hello Mkarias, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, that is what this shortcut for that program will allow.

Thank you, Brink. I tried doing this and can get up to step 9 but then after I hit OK, I get the following: Enter user account information for running this task. My only option is to pick my computer name\standard. I do not input a password and then I get the following message:

Task Scheduler cannot create the task. The user account is unknown, the password is incorrect, or the user account does not have permission to create this task.

Now, I am doing this under the limited account not the Administrator. Is this correct? Am I suppose to use my admin password when I get the first menu? I am confused because my Admin account is not available as an option so why would I need to input it? Thanks.

Mkarias,

You will need to create the task while logged in the administrator account. You cannot do it from within a standard account.

Thanks. OK, I tried this again via the Admin account. I carefully followed all the steps but once I try to run the task via shortcut, I get the following message: Failed to load url of version.ini. I even tried to run the task via the task scheduler and got the same error message.

I deleted the short cut and task and redid this and still got the same message. Any ideas? The game does work fine using the standard shortcut.

I am trying to do for CrossFire (free online FPS game). Thanks!
