    UAC blocking certain programs from running at startup

    I'm having issues with any programs which "Run as Administrator" loading at startup.
    Steam and Rainmeter are the two which are really annoying me just now. If I use the aero tweak tool to completely disable UAC then these programs start without any issues, but as soon as I re-enable them Windows just loads them as background processes without actually loading the programs.

    I hate UAC, and would happily leave it off completely if not for the fact that some of the new Windows 10 programs plain refuse to work when UAC is disabled.

    Any update on this?

    I still can't run any programs at startup which require administrator privileges. I've also noticed my anti spyware software is affected by this and I have to keep manually running it after boot. It's getting to be a real pain in the backside.
