    Programs are exiting after launch


    Hi, i have a very annoying problem here. When i launch certain programs in windows desktop they close after a second (or less). I noticed that if i run them with administrator mode they run normally. Can anyone say me what to do? Tanks in advance

    Hello ihavenokia, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you could use OPTION FIVE in the tutorial below to set them to always "Run as administrator" to not have to manually do so each time you want to run them.

    Run as Administrator - in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    As a test, create a new administrator account, and see if you have the same issue while signed in to the new account.
