Description from Microsoft: How
to deactivate UAC.
The principle is that programs which are started via the UAC GRABBER, no longer have to confirm the UAC dialog. For this, the software reads the windows start menu directory.
But it is NOT so, that starting from programs over the desktop or the original windows start menu (left) are automatically open without UAC dialog.
To start a program without UAC inquiry, proceed as follows:
Start Windows and wait for the tray-icon of the UAC GRABBER (beetle on yellow background) beside the clock. With the left mouse button will open a menu, which maps the Windows Start menu. Then select the
needed program icon, which will start with admin rights and without question.
The software UAC-GRABBER can perform certain actions only with admin rights. This includes adding and removing start menu items, as well as starting and stopping the service. If the software is called without admin rights, the corresponding icon will be hidden.
How do I start the software UAC-GRABBER with admin rights?
Select the UAC-GRABBER icon on the desktop or the Start menu, click the right mouse
button and select "Run as Administrator" from the menu.
