    UAC Prompts from Network Whenever a Network Connects


    Hi, we have a problem on some or all of our 8.1 devices.

    we have a user without local admin rights, whenever he changes location or between wifi/lan on the office he gets an UAC prompt, it doesn´t say anymore then "Network" but i assume it is for network profiles.

    Does anyone know why and how to get rid of it? it is an domain account with a microsoft account attached to it, syncing skydrive and som stuff.

    You could try turning down the UAC security level.

    Hi, thanks for your response.
    Turning down UAC is not an option for us.
