  1. Run a program without admin privileges from admin account


    Okay, I found a thread with this same question, but he was using Windows Server, and so was told this forum was for home users. I am a home user, running Windows 10 Pro, but I have the exact same problem. I cannot run OneDrive.exe, as it says to not run it as an admin. Run as Admin is not checked, but I cannot seem to launch it so that it's not run as administrator, since my account on the PC is an Admin account.


    Help!

  2. Hidden Admin Account Infected - Help

    Somehow my windows 7 hidden admin account got infected. I cannot open regedit, task manager or any virus program.. in fact.. most programs wont work.. but my regular everyday account is fine.

    The problem is this: I have been infected in my regular account before.. and running virus tools from my hidden admin account fixes them.. but I cannot do the reverse now because my regular account doesn't have access to my admin account.

    I know what the virus is.. its a rouge antivirus.. it mostly annoying.. Programs do open up for a split second before this rouge antivirus program closes it again and then lies and gives me a message that says, " Cannot open this program, the program is infected" LOL

    Its putting a lot of adware on my system but not crippling it.. but only in the admin account.

    What are your ideas?

  4. Run a program without admin privileges from admin account

    Programs running in Buit in Admin account but not in User Account having admin privileges

    Hi All

    I am facing an issue for programs running properly in Built in Admin User Account however not in Self created User account having admin privileges.

    This issue occurs with many programs like

    1. i Have to run many programs Setups (.exe) through cmd (as administrator)

    2. Now i am facing the latest issue with Google Backup and Sync Program as it is not running on
    Windows startup in Normal User Account (having admin rights) however the same is running on startup in Built-in-admin account

    - I have tested the same thing on other System also having same config with that of mine and in that it is running properly.

    In Brief : My main issue is at present with Google Backup and sync which is not running on startup in My user account (having admin)

    Please provide the Workaround so that i can give full admin rights to my Normal user account

    Note: I dont want to use Built in admin account as my default user account as i want to keep it separate for any type of recovery in future.

    Thanks
