Start menu activated program run with elevated rights


Recommended Posts

I have a problem with SM8 and security....


If I start a program (like cmd.exe) from the start menu it end up running with elevated rights without asking for elevated permissions.

When I start the same program form the taskbar it will execute with normal (noit elevated) user rights


Please see the attached pictures.


Can anybody confirm this behavior - or is it just my SM8 installation which has a problem ?

I'm using the latest SM8 version dated 01152015 and Windows 8.1 with latest MS patch level
