Assign elevated privileges and prompt for credentials upon program execution. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible? Does anyone out there know? Due to a recent privacy breach at home on my laptop I decided to look into the UAC options for Administrators. All i want to do is assign certain executables to prompt for administrator credentials upon opening (Eg. upon opening mesenger, windows prompts for administrator credentials or consent). There are options for this when detecting installations or modifying settings, but not for program elevation. I currently have Vista Ultimate running with just one user account (administrator) and am quite heavy on security. I don't like having different user accounts because it can cause problems un-installing certain programs.



    Does anyone have a solution?



    Any help will be greatly gratified.
