    Run Administrator Programs in Startup of Standard User


    I have both an administrator and standard account on my laptop. I use the standard account for every general task and do not use the administrator account unless absolutely needed. There are two pieces of software I want to run at startup every time either my standard account or administrator account logs in, Throttlestop or MSI Afterburner.

    I have used Task Scheduler to create a task that run these tasks at startup for both accounts upon login, however the GUI for these programs are not accessible from either account. How would I be able to open these programs at startup on both accounts while allowing me to access the GUI of both?

    Hi, if you research command line parameters for these you might have some luck.

    There are references to a very similar question to yours for MSI Afterburner for example.
    One such suggests
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner\MSIAfterburner.exe" /T

    works. No guarantees. From

    (not a good thread.. useful info is a long way down).

    Try searching using e.g.
    MSI Afterburner command line parameters
