    Which is more secure regards to the UAC Elevation prompt?

    And which one should I select for the Admin account?

    How do I change the default administrator account for the UAC elevation password prompt?

    I have set the "User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode" security policy in secpol.msc to "Prompt for credentials" for security purposes so that even when a user is logged in as an administrator
    they must type their password instead of simply consenting to the UAC prompt. The only problem is that when the built-in Administrator account is enabled the UAC elevation prompt ALWAYS defaults to that account instead of the currently logged in local administrator
    account, requiring the user to click "More choices" then their name before being able to use their own password to elevate. When performing repetitive administrative tasks this quickly becomes very annoying. It was my understanding the UAC prompt should remember
    the last user account used, however that does not seem to be the case. How can I make the UAC elevation prompt default to the currently logged in administrator instead of the built-in administrator account?

    UAC Elevation prompts?

    GPU-Z and UAC on W7x64

    Thank for your help. That looks to be an interesting work around.

    The real fix is to have software that is compliant with new standards. The program Speedfan is capable of running without the prompts so I wonder what the differences are. Can you tell me is this to do with the version of compiler the program is compiled with ?
