UAC/Run as Administrator Issue

Posted: 03-31-2007, 04:40 PM
I have followed the help guidelines for two programs (my netgear wireless
application & Logitech's updater application) by choosing to 'run as
administrator' for each application, both for the shortcut in the start-up
menu and for the actual .exe file indicated in the path statement provided
when it is blocked on startup. Yet I'm still prompted, at every login, to
allow each. It's getting pretty annoying - how do I really allow these
applications to run automatically?

What do you mean blocked. That is Windows Defender terminolgy. So Run As is
irrelevent to this issue. Look in Defender - Sofrware Explorer

What I mean is - I am prompted to allow the application to run every time I
log in. My account has administrator rights. based on the support
documentation I should be able to set it to run as administrator so I don't
have to *allow* it every6 time I log on to the box.

You have to make a shortcut to, and in the shortcut's properties look on the
Compatability tab. I'm not sure what happens if you do it on the exe - it
seems a different mechanism to previous versions of windows where this
command is not a compat command. I run as an Admin so it is greyed out for
me.

Any program that runs at startup that requires Admin privileges, which is
the case if you have checked Run as Administrator, will give the prompt at
start up. The computer has no way of knowing your intent, that you wanted
this program to run with admin privileges this time, so it asks. One option
is to remove the Run as Administrator requirement if the program doesn't
need admin privileges. Another is not run those apps at startup. Why do
you need the Logitech updater to run automatically on startup? See this
link for more info:

Error message when you reach the Windows Vista Desktop: "Windows has blocked
some startup programs"

One way around this is to run these programs as a scheduled task.
