This policy setting controls the behavior of the elevation prompt for standard users. The options are: - Prompt for credentials: When an operation requires elevation of privilege, the user is prompted to enter an administrative user name and password. If the user enters valid credentials, the operation continues with the applicable privilege. - Automatically deny elevation requests: When an operation requires elevation of privilege, a configurable access denied error message is displayed. An enterprise that is running desktops as standard user may choose this setting to reduce help desk calls. - Prompt for credentials on the secure desktop: (Default) When an operation requires elevation of privilege, the user is prompted on the secure desktop to enter a different user name and password. If the user enters valid credentials, the operation continues with the applicable privilege. Note that this option was introduced in Windows 7 and it is not applicable to computers running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008. This policy setting controls the behavior of the elevation prompt for standard users on computers running Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and later versions of Windows. Fix: (1) GPO: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options!User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for standard users (2) REG: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System!ConsentPromptBehaviorUser
