something changed - suddenly asks for administrator rights at program start

Post by Krischu » Mon Nov 28, 2016 11:31 am

Funny. Somthing has changed in Everything. I'm running Windows 7 PRO SP1 (up to the latest updates).
I'm running Everything in Autostart I was used to confirm a yellow alert box popping up and asking to confirm Everything to run under Adminitrator privileges.

Today I started my computer again but that box didn't appear.

Instead, another privilege raising dialog pops up when I start ET interactively from the task bar.

I never saw this dialog before. And the yellow privilege elevation dialog, which automatically appeared at start time, doesn't appear any longer.

BTW, does "indexing of NTFS" volumes mean, that the file contents is indexed or just a directory an index on the directories/files is created?

Please try disabling run as administrator and reinstalling the Everything service:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab
  • Uncheck Everything service.
  • Click Apply.
  • Check Everything service.
  • Click Apply.
  • Uncheck Run as administrator.
  • Click OK.

Actually I didn't want to run ET as a service. Do you now recommend to run it as a service?
Just would like to get back ET's previous behaviour.

Yes, if you are using a standard user account.
