    Hello guys. At first sorry for my bad English.

    So, 1 year ago, after "figthing" to many viruses that affected my PC, because I downloaded too many things with them, I decided to setup a Admin account and turning my account a "normal user". With this, I was able to, everytime, some program needs admin privileges, it asks my password. However, there are many programs that I trust but are everytime I run them, asking for privilegess. Is there anyway to make Windows stop asking me for privileges for those apps? I tried to google for it, but I didn't found any answer.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can disable UAC, but this totally defeats the purpose of having a restricted account . Also, using a restricted account doesn't protect you from malware as it can be executed from the temporary Appdata directory without triggering UAC, thus allowing it to have elevated privileges . You're better off with just an administrative account and using your brain. That's the best way to not get infected .

    Well, you're right, but I feel more safer with that option and also, I'm very fumbling so, let in some malware is a constant in my pc xD
