    Default Start programs with highest privileges in Vista

    There are two ways (other than disabling it) by which you can bypass the UAC prompt for particular applications:

    1. Task Scheduler
    2. Elevate Me

    The first method - Task Scheduler, is very useful in case you have scheduled a particular application to run on start-up and it needs the highest privileges. To do this:

    Control Panel -> System Maintenance -> Administrative Tools -> Schedule Tasks

    The same can be accessed from:

    Start -> Administrative Tools -> Task Scheduler

    From the scheduler, you need to Create a New Task. The wizard can be accessed from:

    Task Bar -> Action (next to File) -> Create Task

    Once the wizard opens, give it a suitable Name & Description. make sure that you check the ‘Run with highest privileges’ option. Screenshot:

    From the 3rd tab (Actions), select the application that you want to run and choose OK. Screenshot:

    This will launch the program (Limewire, in this case) at logon with highest privileges.

    Another way to achieve the same is by using the utility called - Elevate Me. It uses the same method but instead of creating application actions to launch on start-up, it creates itself as a task to run on start-up and parses any application that you want should run with highest privileges.

    To bypass UAC for particular application using this utility:

    1. Download the archive.
    2. Run the install.cmd file.
    3. Right Click on the application and choose Elevate me.


    Download Elevate Me.

    Create UAC White List
