    White List?


    Is there a white list that can be used with the UAC? I believe this would work rather well. When the UAC screen would popup, the user would have several options to choose from. First the user could select NO I don't want to run this program - end of discussion. Secondly the user could say YES I want to run this program. And by the way, add it to my white list so I don't have to go through this drill again. The UAC would be used the way the bean counters had designed it, but the user would only see the UAC popup screen only once for every program that the user uses on a regular basis.

    Hello, this will be of interest. I don't know if this will apply 100% to Win 10 though.

    No, there is no way to create a whitelist as you are considering it. And no, it would not work rather well, it would be a simple way for malware to take over your computer without you knowing. If *YOU* can edit the whitelist, so can any application you run, so they can add themselves to the whitelist and then run without any request.

    There are some workarounds that you can allow individual apps to run automatically as an administrator, but this isn't a white-list per se (though some may call it that, it's really more of running an app as a service). dalchina posted a few options, but be very careful what you automatically elevate.

    I'd be careful with that tool, if you look at the comments on the page, it seems multiple antiviruses are flagging it.
