IE/Chrome ran as administrator on end user PC

    Question

  • I'm a junior network administrator for an MSP out of Dallas, TX and have a question about a possible solution to this issue.

    Basically, Well's Fargo isn't the greatest at developing drivers for their desktop deposit software. 

    Long story short, we need to have IE or Chrome run as administrator without prompting them to enter admin credentials or disabling UAC locally. 

    Any ideas would be much appreciated. I'm open to any suggestions. 

    Note: Firefox is not an option, we uninstalled it from end users PCs.

  • Hi,
    First of all, we could have a try to use group policy for disabling UAC:
    UAC Group Policy Settings and Registry Key Settings

    And you could try setting to run a specific program as Administrator via registry step by step following the article as below, but please make sure to back up the registry before modifying anything in registry:

    There's no way to start one program as administrator without prompting and other programs as administrator _with_ prompting, if UAC is enabled.
    Long story short, you're out of luck here. MS ACT will not help either.
