Bypass UAC for Standard Users


This guide will help setup a Desktop Shortcut for Bypassing UAC for programs that require UAC Administrative Permissions and allow Standard Users to run these programs without Administrative Access using a known bypass trick in Task Manager and a Desktop Shortcut,
You can also use this trick to launch the program via command prompt or from scripts.

Step 1
Open the Start-Menu and typeTask Scheduler then run it​

Step 3
A new window to create tasks will appear, Type a Name and Description of the task and then Tick “Run With Highest Privileges” towards the bottom. (Don’t Change any other settings)
NOTE: Remember the name you called this Task as you will need it later.

warning   Warning

If you created the task under say the "Microsoft" folder the task name changes to C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /tn "\Microsoft\taskname"...You can find out where it was registered by going to the history tab in Task scheduler..

When i do this it wants me to enter my password then says i don't have the privileges. Why?
Are you signed in as administrator?

Hi Sonic,

Just make sure you specify the account username and password at step3 for the administrator account the task needs to runas and make sure you also tick "Run with Highest Privileges" ;)

Locoeng,

You dont need to be signed in as administrator, you only need to make sure the account specifyed to run the task is an adminisrator ;)

After step 7, I go to press okay and it says "Enter user account information for running this task." it comes up with the user dell\(yournamehere) and asks for a password.

I gave it my password for my standard user account on the computer, but it says, "Task Scheduler cannot create the task. The user account is unknown, the password is incorrect, or the user account does not have permission to create this task."

I assume that means that standard users are not allowed to create the task outlined here... is there anything I can do to still bypass UAC? It does come very often, and it is annoying. Vista security seems to have just become so much more intense and uptight, I'm not even sure I can bypass this at all. Well, not easily at least.

Help please?
 
Hello Anika, an welcome to Vista Forums.

I'm sorry, but yes you need to be an administrator to be able to create this task for Standard accounts. :(

So you have to be logged on the administrators account to make this? How to we access this on the Limited accounts?
 
Hello Irukashi, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You cannot. You must be logged into a administrator account to be able to do this. :(

Brink, an expert (who I basically took his word on,) once told me to never disable UAC, as it's the "frontline of defense for Vista." As I understood it, any sort of intrusion, say from the outside or someone remoting-in (sorry, trite example, but best I can do,) would be stopped by UAC.

Since then, I haven't really found reason to doubt it. I've been pretty educated and self-studied; moreover, crash-course-educated on A/V, A/M/ Anti-Spyware, etc. software.

Is it (Windows 7, Vista x64, whatever,) seen, generally, as a nuisance?

I have read this before and haven't seen a true concensus.

Thanks.
