2. Type regedit and press Enter to open Registry Editor.




2. In Registry, navigate to the following location:

6.Close the Registry Editor and continue to step-3.

Step 3. Turn OFF the User Account Control. *

** CAUTION: For safety reasons is not recommended to Disable UAC. So, apply the steps below at your own risk, or add the desired application at startup using the Task Scheduler method.


To Turn OFF the UAC warning:

1. Navigate to Windows Control Panel and open User Accounts.

2. Click Change User Account Control settings.


3. Drag the slider to Never notify and click OK. Then click OK again to the security warning message.
