    Scheduled task to decrease UAC level?

    I have the local admin rights on my work laptop but at the same time GPO enforces default UAC settings on the power up. This is annoying as it prevents some apps I use from proper running (e.g. PhraseExpress or DirectFolders). I have no idea why those apps need a prior UAC approval, but it's not the case here.

    Is there a way to create a scheduled task that would decrease the level of UAC to "never notify" / lowest level? Or is there any other way to do so and make sure GPO will not kill it at next boot?

    Hi, @mikolajek:

    In addition to the excellent advice already offered...

    ...if this is your WORK laptop, you might want to consult with your IT/security folks at work before making changes to the system that affect or bypass UAC, Group Policies or other security settings.
    In many Enterprise environments, these sorts of configurations are controlled by the company's IT folks for a reason.
    They may not wish (or permit) end users to make such changes.

    <just a thought>
