    Create an elevated shortcut

    Found a small portable program, ElevatedShortcut, which allows you to create a shortcut which will not cause a UAC prompt for permissions. This is better than turning UAC off. The website says it is for Windows 7 & Windows 8.

    NOTE: This application should be used only for programs which you trust completely.

    Joe,

    This can be done w/o a separate program. Just create a Task in Task Scheduler and make sure you have the "Run with Highest Privledges" and "Allow task to be run on demand" boxes checked.

    Then create a shortcut to the task:
    Example for Revo Uninstaller: C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /tn "Launch Revo UnInst as Admin"

    I know that but there are many who'd rather use a program than dig into the task scheduler interface.
