User Account Control (UAC) is a feature in Microsoft Windows 7 and above versions, that can help you stay in control of your computer by informing you when a program makes a change that requires administrator level permission. UAC works by adjusting the permission level of your user account.
Though UAC is nice feature which provides an extra layer of security to your computer, but sometimes it become an annoying situation when you see a UAC pop-up even for a frequently used program that is launched on Windows startup. Disabling UAC prompt entirely can prove out to be very bad for the security of your computer and hence is high discouraged. In this article we are going to find a solution of disabling UAC prompt for specific application, rather than changing UAC setting globally.
For demonstration, we are going to use UnoHelper application by UnoTelly. We have covered about UnoTelly’s UnoDNS service earlier. You can change UAC setting for program by following these easy 12 steps.
Step 2: Locate New Folder in right panel of “Schedule Tasks”. Although you can skip to step 4 directly, but we recommend you to create folder for easy identification of your changes.
Step 3: Give name to folder which is easy for you to remember and understand.
Step 4: Right click on empty pane of the folder and select “Create New Task…”
Step 5: Give a name to the Task. Check the “Run with highest privileges” option.
Step 12: Open Task Manager and go to “Startup” tab. Disable the desired application.
And from next reboot your application will be run without UAC prompt !
