    UAC - setting itself back to 'do not notify'

    Hi all,

    My windows 8.1 keeps on changeing the UAC setting back to 'do not notify' without my interaction. Every time I want to reboot I need to open UAC first and then adjust the setting back up.

    What could be causing this... couple of notes below:

    Domain laptop - yes
    My windows login is with my private email not one that's on the domain
    The IT boys use to have me in the XP Active directory group - I'm in the win 8.1 now
    I'm local admin on my laptop

    It is probably remembering the original setting from "Sync Your Settings" - Try shutting it off, setting your UAC to the desired level, then turn on the Sync again. Reboot, and see if it remembers.

    Have tried that, it has to be something else, it will stay on the top setting for 2-3 hours then at some point something moves it down. have not seen anything in the event viewer, could it be the AD groups policy?
