Solved Getting rid of software load prompts in Win10

December 3, 2018 at 16:09:28
Specs: Windows 10, 4x Intel Corei5 CPU 650 - 320 GHz
Every time i open any program - for example, an image in Photoshop, i get "this application is trying to make changes to your computer" message from User Settings.

Is there a way to have Windows remember my choices for the session for each program i use so i don't have to 'Accept' every time i open an image this even when the program is already open?

Seems a bit excessive - has it always done this? Is it still the same after a Restart (rather then shut down then start up again)?

Long shot but power off, remove power cord, then remove main battery if it's a laptop. Before putting it back together hold Power On/Off button for 20 seconds to discharge motherboard.

Failing that this is something which might cure itself after a main features update. Have you had update to 1809 yet?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Although 'Not Recommended' switching User Control settings to OFF does the trick - thanks.

Tried all setting, and only when User ontrol is in the OFF position ('not recommended') do the prompts disappear.
Thanks.

Warning: So long as the program has been updated in the past 10 years, it should account for UAC. If UAC keeps popping up unless you turn it off, it might indicate a larger problem. Like a malware infection.

Try running these two freebies and see if they unearth anything:

AdwCleaner:
https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcle...
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Run the "Scan", followed by the "Clean & Repair".

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

If either of them find something please copy/paste the associated logs on here.

I concur with Razor2.3, you have something else going on. I have Photoshop installed on several Windows 10 machines and not one of them trigger Windows to prompt me with that message.

Thank you for your concern.
MalwareBYTE found nothing, but AdwCleaner detected one threat:

***** [ Chromium URLs ] *****
PUP.Optional.Legacy Ask

which i cleaned.

however, post cleaning result said:

***** [ Chromium URLs ] *****

Not Deleted Ask

Otherwise, i do have a old version 7 of Photoshop, which i have 'updated' via Win10 Compatibility Troubleshooter. This has not affected pop-ups.

So far, the best solution is to set to 'Never Notify' in User Account Control Settings.
Thanks for your help,
m.

Try ADWCleaner again - it might remove Ask next time around.
