[QUOTE=Megalan;53174149]I'm quite sure I am proficient enough in computers and thus don't need OS ask me questions like "Do you really want to launch X? It can harm your computer". My antivirus already does the job of detecting if executable will harm my computer or not far more efficiently.[/QUOTE] The 'it can harm your computer' is defender, which is decent for A/V, but optional if you have a replacement UAC is what protects any application from just running as administrator, it's like removing the entire functionality of sudo from linux, which is made to prevent abuse of application elevation. which means anything can send the admin command to disable your AV service, rendering it useless
Just use LTSB :flex:
[QUOTE=Scratch.;53174171] which means anything can send the admin command to disable your AV service, rendering it useless[/QUOTE] Any decent antivirus prevents you or any application except for itself from doing that unless you disable this kind of protection in settings.

[QUOTE=Scratch.;53175772]It's AM, not AV[/QUOTE] Then why do you provide anti-malware product as an example when we're talking about antiviruses?
[QUOTE=Megalan;53176179]Then why do you provide anti-malware product as an example when we're talking about antiviruses?[/QUOTE] Needed a sample, but I also dug around online for other products you can disable one way or another with basic elevation. If it's required for the script to even execute, which if it's not very well known, it probably won't A number of people within opsec, even AV developers themselves say that their programs are pretty much not even needed, because the OS itself is handling security a shitload better than when AV were deemed critical. UAC is designed like a mimic your basic sudo command, and hell, I've never needed to roll and AV program on a linux machine, because when you limit your administrative access, there's shit all it can do My favourite of AV programs is calling them for an hour and getting a full refund outside their refund window. Because they can't provide the one service they cover, actually protecting users from viruses, Thanks dad for running a cryptlocker (that didn't use encryption....)
[QUOTE=Megalan;53171785]So apparently start menu search completely shits itself and can't find anything outside your user directory (including any start menu items) if you disable UAC. :ok:[/QUOTE] Because MS has strongly encouraged UAC for 12 years and now its "mandatory" in 8 and 10. The entire UWP framework requires it. The only reason they let you turn it off in Vista and 7 was because so many programs were shitty and would need to do stupid shit like write to Program Files or edit HKLM. It was a last resort workaround, not a power user feature. You weren't supposed to have UAC disabled in the first place. Shit breaking because you are using an unsupported configuration is not Microsoft's fault.
honestly though all UAC has made me do is build an intense instinctual reflex to hit left arrow -> enter when the screen flashes and makes a [I]dodadoo[/I] noise
[QUOTE=fishyfish777;53179902]honestly though all UAC has made me do is build an intense instinctual reflex to hit left arrow -> enter when the screen flashes and makes a [I]dodadoo[/I] noise[/QUOTE] Technically speaking, you could just lower the UAC prompt bar so it just automatically elevates programs on request. Less secure, if all you do is hit yes and aren't doing risky shit you are probably fine. The biggest thing it does is limit the amount of damage any one program can do. I leave them enabled, because it makes it obvious when a program wants admin for diagnostic purposes. Where UAC is [i]super[/i] useful is in domain enviroments. Need to install a program for a user? Just run as admin, type in creds and your off. Run as different user in XP was flaky at best and switching users just to install something is fucking cancer.

Thanks much[/QUOTE] Are you infact using an enterprise version of windows? this technet thread returns the same logs [url]https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/741d23d6-197d-419f-950d-d15cb8e77263/windows-10-enterprise-update-fails?forum=win10itprosetup[/url]
no it's just home edition
Anyone else having a problem with their computer waking itself from sleep? My PC will just do it at random times, and using the lastwake command it says it's a 'USB Root Hub' that's doing it. However, in device manager none of them are marked to be able to wake the PC. Any ideas?
Really sick of trying to eject something for windows to tell me something is using it, but then doesn't bother to tell me what exactly is using it.
[QUOTE=Demache;53176833]Because MS has strongly encouraged UAC for 12 years and now its "mandatory" in 8 and 10. The entire UWP framework requires it. The only reason they let you turn it off in Vista and 7 was because so many programs were shitty and would need to do stupid shit like write to Program Files or edit HKLM. It was a last resort workaround, not a power user feature. You weren't supposed to have UAC disabled in the first place. Shit breaking because you are using an unsupported configuration is not Microsoft's fault.[/QUOTE] So.... setting UAC to this is now "unsupported configuration"? Then why the hell they allow it then.

And windows is king of grandfathering support Hell, F13-F24 are still valid keys
yet UAC means nothing in security terms ... any malware can go around it via various loopholes even in W10 it was strange way to to force developers to properly use installers and rights systems and paths

It just doesn't prompt and defaults to yes. The prompt isn't UAC, UAC is a user privilege elevation system. The prompts are merely confirmation of elevation. In Windows 7 lowest would actually turn UAC off.

UAC did make running separate admin and standard accounts stupidly more tolerable. Like I said, it sucked DICK on XP and systems with UAC disabled to follow good practices.

You must run it from an admin desktop. Not 100% sure why, but that's the way she goes. :v:
[t]https://i.imgur.com/iBsmMnG.jpg[/t] Win10 scales pretty well. Using remote desktop on a phone is stellar for UWP apps... can almost feel like it's running native
