Thread: Vista UAC

  1. #1

    Vista UAC

    Easiest way to explain this is:
    I had WoW installed in C:\Program Files(x86)\World of Warcraft\ and it got moved to desktop, so I moved it back to the original place. When it was first in C:\Program Files(x86)\ it didn't ask me to allow it through UAC, but now it is after my little mishap. How can I make it not keep asking again?

    Bad idea to disable UAC. It's benefits outweigh it's annoyance. I only turn it off when I am installing a bunch of trusted applications at the same time (ie just reinstalled windows).
    Node 304 | i7 3770 | H77N WIFI | 2x4GiB HyperX 1600 | 2x512GB MX100 | MSI GTX970 4GiB | U2711 | 6GV2 | Naga Hex Wrath | Yamaha RX-V550 | Win8.1 Pro
    15" Retina MBP | i7 4960HQ | 16GiB 1600 | 512GB PCIe SSD | IRIS Pro + GT750M | G700S | OSX 10.10

    I just added an underscore at the end and now it doesn't pop up with the UAC prompt.
    The thing is the underscore wasn't there before.

    Hmmm, not QUITE sure what I did now, but it's working like it did before.

    I still find the Win7 UAC annoying and disable it immediately. It's definitely not something an average user should do, however.
