    Security question about UAC and Admin aprroval mode


    Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I use an Administrator account with UAC in default. I was reading about Admin Approval and noticed that it is disabled. Should this be enabled? I noticed when it mentions this Admin Approval it says "Built-In" Administrator and I'm wondering if there is a difference between Administrator and Built-In Administrator? I get the UAC consent prompts so am I correct in saying I am protected?

    Thanks!

    :)

  2. Any way to enable an admin password for UAC in windows 10?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft community.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if this helps:



    • Open User Account Control Settings by clicking the Start button.
    • Then type uac, and then click Change User Account Control settings.

    • Do one of the following:
    • To turn off UAC, move the slider to the Never notify position, and then click
      OK. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. You will need to restart your computer for UAC to be turned off.
    • To turn on UAC, move the slider to choose when you want to be notified, and then click
      OK. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Automate UAC to not prompt for admin user/pass when app needs "run as administrator"

    As I understand your question, UAC now prompts you for a username and password, and you would prefer to see a "Yes/No" UAC prompt instead.

    Normally if you are not logged in as a local Administrator, the UAC prompt you for credentials. Otherwise, you will get the standard Yes/No (Admin Approval) UAC prompt.

    This behavior can be changed in the Local Security Policy.

    • Open the Local Group Policy Editor gpedit.msc (as an Administrator).
    • Navigate to the following: Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Local Policies, Security Options
    • Check the policies starting User Account Control, specifically
      • Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode: Enabled
      • Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode: Prompt for consent for non-Windows binaries

    MCHBAR read access failed

    curious problem - i suggest doing what Easo has suggested with admin mode, otherwise try with UAC disabled (which does the same thing really)
