Hi all.


Just recently upgraded to Win 10. Everything is fine except when it comes to downloading stuff. I tried downloading Unchecky from this site but i keep getting UAC box appearing saying: Do You Want to Allow this App to Make Changes to your PC. To continue Type Admin Password then Click Yes.


Can i stop this from happening or is it the norm? Find it mildly irritating!

Hiding in the Control Panel -> User Accounts -> choose your account

Click on 'change user account settings' and slide the button to the bottom. You will have to 'allow' one more time and then never again - until MS changes things.

          Are you positive this is occurring at download, or are you using IE or another browser that allows you to run the program as soon as its done downloading?


          I have never seen UAC complain at the time anything is downloaded.  It virtually always comes up at install time.  Those can appear to be one and the same if you're using the settings that run as soon as download is complete.  I have UAC fully on and an Unchecky download, strictly download, triggers no warning at all.


          You can turn UAC "down" or "off" following Dick's instructions, but I used to hate UAC, and turned it off, but it has saved me a couple of times from unintentional installation (caused by finger twitch creating a double click when a single was intended).

I have never experienced UAC statements in Windows 10, so this is not normal.
