I have just updated an HP Elitebook 8570w laptop from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro (for FREE!). The laptop is about 7 years old and has a third generation i7 processor. It seems to have mostly gone well, but the User Account Control pops up quite often and repeatedly.
My question is there a way to tame the UAC, perhaps a Whitelist of trusted programmes? I would rather not turn the UAC off as I am not sure if that is the safe thing to do.
I agree with you Govan1x, it is nothing but a nuisance.
I seem to remember that in the past, in an earlier version of Windows, I think it was Norton that produced a programme that allowed you to answer the UAC query box with the allow button press and that answer was remembered for future uses of that programme.
What I am really after is something which will let me Whitelist the programmes I want to use without UAC intervention.
