Disable UAC completely

  1. #21

    My Dirty Fix I hate this problem


    So the original posters method does work, but if your like me, a few months after running this otherwise great OS, Windows UAC starts comming back after each boot back to not even normal but Always notify me. Anyway this is how i fixed the Issue FOR GOOD!!

    Create this cmd save as whatever you want EX : NOUAC.cmd (use notepad but dont save as NOUAC.cmd.txt make sure its NOUAC.CMD)

    This is what goes in the file

    echo Y | reg add "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v EnableLUA /t reg_dword /d 0 && echo Y | reg add "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin /t reg_dword /d 0 && echo Y | reg add "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v PromptOnSecureDesktop /t reg_dword /d 0

    This gets saved in

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp

    Viola Each boot it fixes the registry... I have redone windows atleast 2 or 3 times now and this problems always comes back,s so i decided to buckle down and fix it, not a great fix, but it works
