    User Account Control

    I used to run W7 with a hdd supplemented by a Sandisk 32gb Readycache. It ran automatically on bootup, there was a desktop icon to check up on it. W7 is now running from an ssd and the Sandisk is now with the old 80gb hdd for W10. Every time that W10 gets to desktop, the User Account Control asks if I want to run the caching software. I have looked in user accounts but haven't found a way to enable individual programs without letting the lot through.

    This needs to posted under a Windows topic, not an Office topic and not a topic specific to Microsoft Access the database.

    User account control.

    I posted the message below on the Microsoft Community website on the 1/2/16. I tried all their suggestions to fix the problem but none worked.

    Original Title : User account control.

    I have been using windows 10 for about 2 months and this problem only started today.

    I suspect it may have been caused by the update that occurred yesterday. But maybe not.

    The problem is - every time I try to open the Word or Excel program or one of the saved files for either of these programs the whole screen goes black and a little window appears on the screen with a message saying "do you want this app to make changes to
    this PC?" Below this message is

    Program Name - Microsoft Word

    Verified Publisher - Microsoft Corporation

    File Origin - Hard Drive on this Computer

    I have used Word and Excel nearly every day since installing Win 10 and the above message has never appeared before today.

    Hope you can help

    I have listed below, a copy of what occurred during my communication with the Microsoft community.

    As you will see below, their last recommendation to me was to contact this "dedicated Office support forum" to see if you know how to fix this problem. Can you please help in doing so.

    Hi John,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    1. Do the issue occur with only these two programs?
    2. What is the KB number of recent Windows update?

    I would suggest you to set User Account Control settings to default and check, if it works.

    1. Type User account control settings in the search bar, Then User account control settings Window will open.

    2. Set the pointer at default in the User account control settings Window.
    If the issue persist, provide us the recently installed KB article number.

    Below are the steps to view installed updates :

    Type “View Installed Updates” in the Search box and then click on
    View Installed Updates in Control Panel from the Search results.

    Let us know if this helps.

    Keep us posted for further assistance, we are here to assist you.

    Hi Akheel,

    1. Yes this issue only occurs with these 2 programs.

    2. The user account control settings were already set to default.

    3. The KB article number was KB3124262.

    Thanks for your assistance

    Hi John,

    Sorry for the delay in response.

    Suggest you go to "Accounts" under control panel and make sure it still says "administrator" under your name?

    Also, suggest you to refer the below suggestion replied by Niranjan Manjhi Aug-03-2016.

    Administrator permissions

    Hi Akheel

    There isn't a (good) way to whitelist specific programs. There are some hacks, which I don't recommend. One such hack is to create a scheduled task at login that runs with administrative privileges. I've never managed to make such a process work correctly though when I've tried with other tools.

    Windows already has a "readyboost" technology built-in, so i'm not sure why you need an additional one. Why don't you use the built-in readyboost?

    Two reasons, first the Sandisk was redundent and second, I had no idea that "readyboost" existed.

    Or just turn off the UAC, I`ve always found it useless.

    That wouldn't let the program "run as administrator" at startup though. *Sad

    My bad, I read it wrong *Redface

    I thought the pop up window was just annoying the op.

    No problem mate. *Smile

  11. I've tried having UAC off and starting a shortcut marked Run As Administrator in Compatibility Tab using my program RunIt from this page:
    Miles Ahead Windows Downloads Index

    Some work and some do not. But it's worth a try. I find many of my AHK hotkey programs that watch desktop windows run in normal mode on W7, but must be run as admin on W10.

    See the included Readme.txt for usage instructions. RunIt adds an entry to the Run registry setting. To remove any programs set up this way search RegEdit for RunIt_xxx where xxx is the name of the shortcut. Just delete the appropriate RunIt_ Registry entry.
