    Hello Brink, I have used this guide to get GPUtweakII (ASUS GPU tweaking tool) to run at startup without the UAC being prompted, except if I don't manually close the program before restart/shutdown, it will ask for UAC on restart. Is there a way to stop that? Or make GPUtweakII close down on restart/shutdown?

    Hello Burbla, :)

    As a test, see if turning off “Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting my device after an update or restart” may stop this for you.

    Sadly that didn't work. I guess it asks for elevated permissions then if I'm understanding

    It comes down to if the app is programmed to request for elevated rights (aka: "Run as administrator") to run.

    Using the method in this tutorial would normally stop it from giving a UAC prompt to run at startup.

    However, with the new behavior for automatically restarting opened apps at startup after you restart or shutdown the PC, that would cause you to get the UAC prompt for the app if left open when you shutdown. Normally, turning off Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart would stop this, but only starting with build 17040.

    Hello Biffle, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    That wouldn't be related to this tutorial. This tutorial is only for creating an elevated task to run what you want elevated without being prompted by UAC.

    It sounds like you enabled your BIOS/UEFI splash screen setting somehow instead.

    Did you reset your BIOS/UEFI setting back to default, or made any changes?
