Windows 7 User Account Control Warning on each boot up?

Post by budcurtis » Wed Jan 18, 2012 4:03 pm

On each Windows 7 boot I get the following User Account Control warning pop up.
Do you want to allow the following program from an
unknown publisher to make changes to this computer


Program name: openvpn-gui.exe
Publisher: unknown
File origin: Hard drive on this computer
:?: I realize I could relax the general rule, but is there a way to eliminate the message for just OpenVPN?

Here are 2 possible solutions:

and

But I haven't tested either so try at your own risk!

I found a lot of results on Google. Maybe this will help ...

That reminds me, I need to disable this for 2 programs on my windows machine.

Hope that helps. Again, I've not tested anything. It's worth noting that disabling any sort of access control does decrease security, but you're probably aware of that.

Windows 7 makes it much easier to deal with UAC settings, and in fact you don’t have to completely disable UAC if you don’t want to. Just type UAC into the start menu or Control Panel search box.

You can simply drag the slider up or down, depending on how often you want to be alerted.

If you drag it all the way down to the bottom, you’ll have disabled it entirely.

Hope this will help you.

Found this, hope it helps, straight from MS http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... 95bf1c519d . Seems to be the same for both Vista and Windows 7
