Elevated Programs

Q: Elevated Programs

Hey. I have downloaded a game on steam called "Dragon Nest". When I start the game up, a UAC window pops up and tells me that I need administrator privileges. No problem. This is my laptop so I am the admin. The problem is that I don't want this program to require elevated privileges and I am looking for a way to change that. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Elevated Programs

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Elevated Programs

If it wasn't a Steam game, I'd say try to just set the shortcut to run as admin, which might work anyway.

But since it is Steam, probably best to leave it alone and be glad it's all working for ya as is. One minor thing can break stuff with Steam.

hello
I don't know where to post this but I think it most probably belongs here...
I use RivaTuner to overclock my Graphics Card but to apply these settings at startup it has to Autostart as an administrator.
I always have to click on "Yes" to allow it which is quite annoying...

I know there is the "application compatiblity toolkit 5.5" where I can make an application fix with the option "runasinvoker" and also "runasAdmin" (or something similar, to run it as admin) and it won't prompt me to grant permission, but RivaTuner gives the error: "Cannot load RivaTuner64.sys driver. Please ensure that this file exists in RivaTuner's folder and your user account has administrative rights"

I do have administrative rights but...
and if I (with the application fix installed) rightclick on rivatuner and select "Run as Administrator" it prompts me for elevation and it works....

But I want it to work without me giving permission ...

any ideas?

A:Auto start elevated programs

Hello Tyderion,

You can see if using Method Two in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below to create a task in Task Scheduler for it to run at startup may work for you instead. It will allow elevated programs to run as startup without being prompted by UAC.

Hope this hasn't been posted, but I couldn't find anyone with the same problem online.
 
I was optimizing my computer by selecting which Windows 8.1 services to disable, following Black Viper's guide. I must have accidentally disabled Application Information and a few others because now I can't run any program or tool that requires UAC elevation. Now I need to re-enable these services, but going into services.msc is impossible because I need to elevate it. It gives the following error:
 
C:\Windows\System32\services.msc
 
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
 
A bit of a paradox and catch-22 that could easily be remedied by booting into safe mode and re-enabling them there. However for some reason I get a black screen with the words "Safe mode" flashing, and disappearing in each corner along with the mouse cursor. I've tried all the safe mode boot options and they all do it. No idea why. The only thing I can do is boot into command prompt and use FRST to scan but I don't know how to enable services using the program.
 
If anyone knows how to enable Application Information and maybe Windows Installer and Windows Modules Installer using FRST I'd be very grateful.

A:Disabled Windows Services - can't run elevated programs

Have you tried disabling UAC and then trying to enable the required services. 
 
Try enabling the inbuilt admin account and then see if it allows you enable the required services from that account.
 
Have you installed any software in order to optimize your system.

Hi,
I have a Windows 7 Pro and every elevated program that I run is recognized as "Unknow Publisher", even all programs from Microsoft Windows.
 
This is a fresh install on top of a Windows XP. All Windows XP data went to Windows.old
 
There are examples of the "Unknow Publisher" messages:
- Start, Right click on Computer, Administer -> Unknow Publisher
- Start, type "cmd", right click on cmd.exe, Run as Administrator -> Unknow Publisher
- Control Panel, UAC setting, move slider and click OK -> Unknow Publisher
 
Should I re-install? This PC had memory errors too, I had to change the RAM after memtes86 returned errors
 
Many thanks

A:All programs when elevated recognized as Unknow Publisher

To be honest...I would start by satisfying myself that the system has no RAM, hard drive or other component problems...before I even thought about trying to install an O/S.

I'm running Vista Home Premium, and there's an account that had Administrator privileges but it doesn't show on the login screen. The two accounts available are a Standard user and the Guest account. I reboot into safe mode but the only two options are the two mentioned. I can't do anything in safe mode as far as the User Accounts applet is concerned, but I ran a "net user" command and it showed that the Administrator privileged account is active.

I can't edit the registry, and the UAC doesn't have any options of selecting an elevated account (it's completely blank).

I recently had a problem where my graphics driver decided not to install the update after it removed the working version, now I can't get any version to install. But, that's a different issue (maybe connected though). I just went through and did a full virus scan using pretty much every boot cd I have at hand, as well as malwarebytes (oh, and that's another issue to work on later) and superantispyware. None found any problems except the usual tracking webpages ... nothing major. Ok, so after rebooting after all of that, everything is running in Admin mode! I'm still logging in with my normal username and the Administrator account is still disabled. But if I go to open a cmd prompt I see that the command will run with elevated privs. I can't figure out why. Does anyone have any ideas?

Please help. My computer is running extremely slow and it is almost brand new. I have scanned for viruses using Spybot and Spyware Doctor. Nothing unusual pops up. However, when I look at the CPU usage in the Task manager it will go from 5% upwards of 100% and change by the second. Since the CPU usage is so high I imagine this is why my computer will stall or be very slow opening up programs or executing any functions. I had help once where I used HiJack This and someone showed me what to delete to clean my computer. Can someone walk me through this? Or ss there any freeware available to help with this problem or does anyone have any suggestions. I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 which is using Windows XP operating system. Thank you very much in advance.
 

A:elevated CPU usage

Hi jmontcri,

Check what programs are running (cntr-alt-del) will
bring up the task manager. Check "applications".

You should also check completely for spyware and
virii.

And your virtual memory is probably "thrashing", constantly
re-sizing. You should set it to what would be a "static"
size.

Right click on My Computer. Hit "Properties". In the upper right
you will see "Advanced", then hit "settings", under "virtual
memory". Go to "Advanced". You can choose which drive
to use and you can re-set it manually. Hit "change"

If you have lots of RAM, set it for 400 Meg low, 400 meg
high. Hit set, apply and go out. You will need to reboot.
This should improve speed significantly.

Not sure if this is the proper forum for my question, but here it goes.

I'm using a SSH server to remotely access my notebook from work. It works well for SFTP and remote command line access using a dedicated, non-admin, user account.

Problem is when I want to run something that requires admin permission under that connection. The server runs cmd.exe under the context of a non-admin user I've created for it, so I'm limited in what I can do. Question is, how can I "elevate" that remote command prompt to execute admin-only programs and commands? UAC of course will not help under that conditions.

Thanks!

before you enter the command you can use the runas command first. You can also save the credentials so you dont have to enter them in every time.

Hi All,

I am writing a dos batch file for windows7 and it has many commands which need elevated access to run. For elevation I am using elevate.exe. I am doing like below -

set Elevation=elevate -wait cmd.exe /c
%Elevation% "cd /d %CD% && xcopy /E /Y ...."
%Elevation% "cd /d %CD% && command 2 .."
%Elevation% "cd /d %CD% && command 3 .."
%Elevation% "cd /d %CD% && command 4 .."
.....

My script calls elevate for cmd and then "cd /d %CD% for each command as elevate changes the working path to /system32 I am forced to change the directory every time I run elevate. It also prompts user for "UAC" dialog for each elevate command, so for ten such command UAC prompts will come 10 times . Commands I am using are mix of DOS command(like xcopy, diskpart etc) and some other 3rd party executable. So there is two problem for which I need some help-

1. How to call elevate for cmd.exe once and run rest of the command in same elevated console.
2. How to change working directory once instead with every command. I think solution to first one will take care of this also.

Any help is most welcome.

When I am logged into a "standard" account, and choose to run a program as an "administrator" with the "run as" choice. Does it leave me running at an administrator level until I relog in or does it just run that program at that elevated privelage.
Thanks, Scott

A:[SOLVED] elevated privelages

Using the "run as administrator" option only runs the specified program as administrator. It does not change how you are logged in but only effects that one program. But note that by default programs inherit the rights of the parent process. If that one program you run as administrator opens others they will also have administrator rights that continue as long as they are running.

The purpose of the "run as administrator" option is to allow you to run an application with elevated privileges without the need of closing all open applications, logging out, then logging as an administrator.

A:infected with ZeroAccess - need elevated help

Hello and welcome.  Please follow these guidelines while we work on your PC:
Malware removal is a sometimes lengthy and tedious process. Please stick with the thread until I’ve given you the “All clear.”  Absence of symptoms does not mean your machine is clean! 
Please do not run any scans or install/uninstall any applications without being directed to do so.
Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don't hear from you within five days this thread will be closed.
  Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.
 
Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

This probably is not new to many, but I find it useful.

There are times I want an elevated command prompt. I usually type in "cmd", right click on it and run as administrator. If you need an elevated command prompt now and then, simply create a shortcut to "cmd". Right click on the shortcut, left click on properties. Click the shortcut tab and select "advanced". Finally, you can select "run as administrator".

Like I said, just something I didn't think about before, but it's handy to have.

A:Tip for Elevated Command Prompt

Elevated Command Prompt

Hi,

For those who'd like to use the power of a permanent admin (can of course be reverted) prompt here's how:

Elevated Command Prompt Shortcut - Windows 7 Forums

Open Explorer and drill down to:

C:\Users\"Username"*\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\System Tools

There you see the command prompt shortcut as the first of a list of shortcuts. Right click it, choose properties from the list.
The property list will open, now choose Advanced and tick the "Run as Administrator" checkbox. Click Apply, Close. Done.

Now every time you run a command prompt you'll run it with administrative rights.

Cheers,

* Username: the account name you logged on with.

A:Elevated prompt/Run as Administrator once and for all.

I don't have that option.

I have been trying to register a program I bought and they tell me I must be logged in as Admin.

When I try to get to the elevated CMD prompt I am entering: net user administrator /active:yes

I get an ERROR 5 message and nothing happens.

I have also tried to use the other method using the Computer Management | Users method and enabling the account there. I don't see anything happening when I do this unless I have to reboot the machine, which I haven't tried.

The admin account is simply administrator and has not been renamed to something else and there is no password. I have used the CMD prompt method before and it worked fine now for some reason it won't.

Thanks ,

I need to find my login in windows 8 pro. I used Winaero User List Enabler and restarted it boots to elevated adminstrator account and gives no options and doesn't ask for a password. Not sure which tutorial applies to my situation. I think I need to create another user for me. I lost my account when I restored an image.

Don't seem to be able to unbold the text. I think I am in the built in Admin account.

A:Only have elevated adminstrator login

Hello sparhawk,

If you didn't have the user account when the image was created, then that would be why the account doesn't exist now.

If the Reset to defaults option is grayed out in Winaero User List Enabler, then that means you already are using the default settings. You may have undone your previous setting when you did the system image recovery.

I think I understand how Linux handles the elevated privileges, but I'm not sure how Microsoft does it. Did they try to reinvent the wheel or just use public domain code from Linux (A rhetorical question).
When I installed W7 Pro on my PC, it had me create a profile. I then customized the profile to have the basic apps that I would need to administer the PC. I want to demote this account's privileges to better secure the PC. What is the best way to enable
elevated privileges with a password and keep the highest level of security.
I have seen methods (copy profile to a different account) on the web and followed them, but they seem to have issues. I don't know how Microsoft intended this to work, but I would like to know what method the Technical community believes is the right way
to handle this.
Thanks in advance.

I have a new Win7x64 Pro that I am the sole Administrator for with no other users.
I recently discovered that I cannot do some things like Copy/Paste various files/folders or even simple things like changing the icon for shortcuts that I just created.

I am used to unrestricted access to my previous XP-Pro comp and frustrated by the complexity of Win7 Permissions.

I have read about a dozen different tutorials on how to accomplish Elevated Rights and they all seem to differ wildly depending on what is desired and most are very involved.

I don't want temporary or narrow defined rights. I want what I had in XP.

How do I forever get rid of this @#$* headache once and for all and never ever again see or hear anything about Permissions???

PS: My wife will soon be getting her own Win7 comp and I'll want to set hers up identical to mine.

A:How to change to Administrator with Elevated Rights for ALL?

What I have done is to take ownership of Windows and all folders by following this Tutorial:

Take Ownership Shortcut

I also have the UAC turned down to it's lowest level-no notifications. I have also taken ownership of the registry by using this program




Quote:
RegOwnershipEx Take ownership and access of registry keys and jump to them directly


This can be found at WinAero: Winaero - Free small and useful software for Windows. I hope that this helps you.

Hello Mark, and welcome to Eight Forums.

What system file are you trying to move?

If you like, you could enable the built-in "elevated" Administrator account, then sign in to it to have full elevated rights when needed. Do note, that Store apps will not work in elevated accounts.
