Skip UAC issue revisited

Recommended Posts

Long time Pro user and trying to get rid of the UAC warning appearing at boot up.  I read the pinned solution but I have not had any luck in getting past the warning popup.  Any help in this regards?

 

Latest Win10 Pro OS and did have administrator user account enabled with my daily login account set to Standard User.

Recently changed daily account back to administrator and have hidden the administrator user account.  Might this have any bearing why having issues?

 

Welcome response to my dilema.

I agree that the pinned solution doesn't work. If you select the windows 7 version, ccleaner still tries to use $(Arg0). I edited the ccleaner task and removed $(Arg0) to see what would happen. ccleaner was started at login with no UAC error, but it wasn't in the monitoring mode. So the problem isn't that it's using the windows 10 task type, it's $(Arg0). Using the windows 7 task type doesn't fix anything, because it uses $(Arg0), which is fine, since windows 7 supports it.

 

As I posted in the ccleaner forum, this is a piriform bug and it's not going to get fixed by piriform blaming it on Microsoft for deprecating $(Arg0). Microsoft in their infinite wisdom or lack thereof changed windows 10. If Windows 10 no longer supports $(Arg0), the approach being taken by piriform is broken. It's a bug.

 

Also, none of other the other tasks on my computer have this problem and not surprisingly, they don't use $(Arg0). Unless Piriform has inside knowledge that Microsoft is going to restore $(Arg0) the way it was, for ccleaner to set up a task in "windows 10" mode passing $(Arg0) is broken and will never work and therefore piriform's "windows 10" mode needs to be fixed. Dropbox and google pass arguments to tasks, just not using $(Arg0). No other tasks have this problem. Piriform needs to modify ccleaner so it will pass arguments using another method, like other tasks do. How is this NOT piriform's problem?

 

Piriform, please fix this problem. It annoys the heck out of me and the other people who use the computers I installed ccleaner on. This bug causes people to think ccleaner is annoying, even to the point of uninstalling it. It's not reasonable to leave this bug unfixed.

Updating this thread. My computer is on the latest insider release, post creators update, build 16184 and ccleaner skip uac is still not working. It's probably reasonable to think that if Microsoft has not restored the $(Arg0) function by now, they have no intention of doing so. In that case, it's time for Piriform to fix this annoying bug.
