UAC interference RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running Win 7 Ultimate on my main desktop. I use Chrome and Safari, and occasionally IE9. At some point, possibly after Safari upgraded with the usual Mac notification, the UAC started asking if I would allow Safari to run. I'd already been using it with no interference for a couple of years, so why now? Extremely irritating. Anyone got any ideaS?

  • Seems this issue has been happening to some users.

    In Computer, open Local Disk C.
    If you've got a 32-bit Windows, open the "Program Files" folder.
    If you've got a 64-bit Windows, open the "Program Files (x86)" folder.
    Open the Safari folder.
    Right-click on your safari.exe and select "Properties"
    Go to the Compatibility tab and make sure *no boxes whatsoever* are checked in the tab.

    Make sure "Run as Administrator" is not checked!
