I have some programs running on start-up my UAC prompts every time the Windows starts. How can I set a program to make sure that no UAC prompt would not appear during start-up or when I install software or a prpgrams it appears to ?

press windows key and 's'  key simultaneously to open a search bar. Type 'user accounts' into search bar, and select that in search results. In the User Accounts panel, there is an option 'Change User Account Control settings', select that.

 

You should see a slider that determines what conditions prompt you. The higher the slider is set, the more often you get prompted.

Hi sportman12 :)

Sadly, it's impossible to do what you're asking. You cannot manage UAC by allowing certain programs to ask for it, and others to not ask for it. The only thing you can do is change its intensity level via the procedure yu gnomi gave you already. Security wise, you should leave UAC at its default level (or put it on the higher level if you wish but that's not necessary). Disabling the UAC completely, or reducing it to the level below the default one can make your system easier to fall to malware infection. To sum it up, you can only disable the UAC, or enable it on one of the three given level, simple as that.

I have no idea of what you just said. On which level is your UAC currently set?

Let's say they range from 1 to 4, 1 being the lowest, 4 the highest and 3 the default.

sportman, I honestly have no idea of what you mean. This being said, the only way to completely disable the UAC prompt when you start up your computer and/or to install programs is to set it at the lowest bar (at the bottom). This is however a huge security risk.

Alright let's take a look at this under another angle... Follow the instructions below please.

Hey .. I was just looking at the same thing for myself, and found that along with this linked program list How to Temporarily Disable your Anti-virus

 

There are cases during repairing computers that you may need to see How to disable UAC also Disable User Account Control.

It just shows you in pictures how to up or drop your UAC settings. Is yours like Aura's and set in about the middle, or Default use. Sorry but to paraphrase what Aura has said, if a program is installed with UAC, then it seems that you need to Right Click on it and Select, Run as Administrator.

To me it is no biggie, but there are times that others do not understand that this was how you installed it, and it will have a UAC shield showing.
