How do I disable "This task will be created with Administrative Privileges" in the Run As dialog box? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Someone used my computer the other day and thought they were doing me a favour by clicking "Always run as administrator" in the Run As dialog box.

    As a result, every time I press Win-R I am told that "This task will be created with Administrative Privileges" and I can't find any way to reset this back to default.

    I've tried looking in User Access Control but the slider seems ineffective.

    I've also looked in secpol.msc but I'm not sure what I'm looking for or if I'm even in the right place.

    It's driving me nuts. Would anyone be so kind as to help me out? Many thanks.

  • Hi,

    Base on my test and research, there’s impossible to disable this notification message.

    Thank you for your understanding.

  • Did you reboot after changing the UAC slider? That worked for me.

  • Run secpol.msc

    Go to:

    Local Policies
        Security Options
            User Account Control: Use Admin Approval Mode for the built-in Administrator account

    Enable it. No longer running in "Windows 95" mode :)

    (Yes, I'm answering 3 years later, but it's strange that I had to find the answer on Youtube - the guy was disabling this setting, so I thought reversing shouldn't be too hard - after reading the accepted answer here that "it's impossible"!)

  • And another 3 years later I'm saying thanks for making the impossible possible ;-)
