    Have you tried first disabling UAC and then disabling Admin approval mode with secpol.msc? Local Policies | Security Options

    Or in User Policies | Local Rights Assignment, there is the ability to enable "Act as part of the operating system"

    Explained: "This user right allows a process to impersonate any user without authentication. The process can therefore gain access to the same local resources as that user."
