Vista keeps asking for admin rights



  • When I run PowerArchiver 2007, even though the link and the actual programs have RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR checked or enabled, it still pops up the DO YOU WANT TO LET THIS RUN continue/cancel question whenever I open a file with PA…

    I thought once I upgraded to 2007 from 2006 this would be fixed, but it still does it. And I am logged in as Admin as well. No huge thing, but still annoying.

    How to get rid of that without completely disabling UAC?

    Thanks for any help



  • Also I don’t have to enter my password, merely answer the popup whether to allow it or cancel.

    I am using Vista w/Service Pack 1 but the behavior described here was the same before SP1.

    thats standard Vista UAC prompt.

    If you want to run it as admin, it will ask you each time. That is what UAC does.

    You can change that only by disabling UAC. Or disabling starting up as admin.



  • Don’t you just love Vista 😉

    there is nothing really wrong with UAC and of course, it can be completly disabled too 🙂



  • Well I run several other programs and I have them set with admin rights and they don’t bug me each time I do something… oh well.

    My email is one of them, bugged me every time I started it like PA does now. I set them to run with admin rights (once I figured out I could set that in the properties) and since then nothing. PA is the only program I cannot get to not bug me.

    if you set it to run with admin rights, UAC will be activated on every startup. Thats how it works.

    I suggest that you dont set it up to run with admin rights and that way UAC will activate only when changing some setting, which should be very rarely…

    But complete point of UAC is to activate when you need admin rights.
