    Hey mate,

    That would be for the UAC shield overlay. It's on my list.

    However, It would be best to leave it so that you know that it requires elevated rights to run, and may get a UAC prompt to approve based on your UAC settings.

    Of course i do get a prompt, i knew what is was just forgot the exact wording for it. Confused, if i remove it, i will still get the prompt as i do now anyway ? Thanks Brink, guess i did not fully read whole tutorial, skimmed through it briefly. Good tutorial, some overlays are annoying, but this one is bigger, UAC.

    Yes, you'll still get a UAC prompt. The shield is just cosmetic.

    o.k. when said best to leave it, had me thinking. Cosmetic like shortcuts. Had a dock program once that when i dragged icon from desktop to the dock, this would disappear, same with shortcuts weird huh and i would still get the prompt as you say now too. Do not want to change my UAC settings though. Thanks !!
