Windows 10: How can I stop a Program (ClipBoard Master) from being ELEVATED? Solved

    How can I stop a Program (ClipBoard Master) from being ELEVATED?


    My wife Installed ClipBoard Master on her system. We have 3 systems all with 64 bit Win 10. The 2 I installed are OK. Hers runs, but the software does not come up at boot time. She needs to click it after bootup. I notice that hers has this as Elevated (TaskManager Details), but I can not reset it. In fact if I check properties on her clipboardmaster.exe the run as admin is grayed out. How the heck can I fix this...I have no idea what she did when she installed it! I guess I can compare Security settings for the program but we have never touched this setting before.

    Hello MPSAN,

    You might check the registry using Option 11 in the tutorial below to see if the program may be listed to run as administrator using compatibility mode. If it is, you can delete the string value for the program to stop it.

    Thank You...
    Great, I can try this. If I do delete the string value, will it just stop the program from loading as admin (Elevated) or will it stop it from loading at all? If so, can I re-enable it? Also, I can try Option 10 as I do have the run as admin grayed out!

    Deleting it will only remove the compatibility setting to have it always run as administrator. It won't affect it for anything else.

    Uncheck the Run this program as an administrator box in Option 10 would do the same as Option 11.

    Well, I am running Reflect now before I play with this. :-)
    I checked and there is Nothing for this program in Layers. I checked both user and all users. I believe I will try Option 10 as the condition of the run as admin IS grayed out!

    Thank You. However Option 10 is NOT the same as option 11. Option 10, with Admin grayed out WORKED. Thank you again.
