    Exe has to be digitally signed, only less used apps do not have a certificate, it costs a lot of money. But you can still run them, just not with admin rights, most do not need them anyway. You can check properties for a certificate, if it does not have one, you will get an error. I have created a script to turn it on/off, when need and shortcuts like this.


    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "ValidateAdminCodeSignatures" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    start "" "E:\Software\Windows_Repair_Toolbox.lnk"
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "ValidateAdminCodeSignatures" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    Hi,
    Why MS built in flash player in win-10 is sort of baffling to me
    Why flash is still around is also baffling it needs to go away

    I suppose MS will just do the oddest thing and buy flash player from Adobe lol

    Mike, my guess would be that not everyone has switched over to the new standard. If they did away with flash right now, too much content would be unavailable. I think it is on it's way out though. It just may take more time.
