Hi there,

 

I want a program (Core Temp) to be started automatically at login but W7 requests me for the Administrator password every time.

Is there a way to avoid this request?

Wasn't there just a way to put Core Temp's shortcut in the Startup folder in the Start menu on Windows 7, and that's it?

Doesn't work.

The program requires to be run by the Administrator.

Well, then give it Administrator priviliges. I think this was done by right-clicking on Core Temp and then selecting Properties. Somewhere in the sub-menus of Properties you should have 'run as administrator' or something like that. :)

I think one can right-click on either the EXE or the shortcut to that EXE, go to Security and make an adjustment there.  Be careful, if one becomes a "kid in a candy store" -- one will be reaching for the Windows install DVD or current OS backups.

Try Task Scheduler.

Even though I've peeked in there several times during each year, I have never actually tried to make tweaks in that area; can't advise you.  However, I see meddab1 came up with a great idea!  Try his idea and report back  :)

@RolandJS

Thanks anyway :)

 

@medab1

Actually I am using Task Scheduler to run Core Temp at login but it seems I can't figure how to avoid the request for the Administrator password.

This might not work for the current version of CoreTemp, but I'm sure you can improvise.

@hamluis

I usually google before asking for help.

 

@Bleepin' Owl

I'm pretty sure I've already tried that, anyway I followed the tutorial step by step.

I'll update the thread as soon as I reboot.

Followed the tutorial linked by Bleepin' Owl, the program doesn't start at all. I had to start it manually (and again I was asked for the password).
