    @MrGenius - Apologies for the delayed response to your excellent tutorial and provision of the ActiveBoot files.

    The modified file I had prepared worked first time once replaced using the methodology provided and like Pooterman I too am now free of the ugly UAC Shield Icon overlay and thank you for taking the time to respond to my post with such a comprehensive solution which I feel sure will benefit other forum members in this position.

    Using nircmd to delete the yellow/blue shield icon

    Change your target to something like C:\Windows\ elevate "C:\Program Files (x86)\program"

    nircmd is available for free at

    Replace the .abc with .com. [Working around Cloudflare blocking my response.]
