Updating without admin rights and UAC turned on!

Recommended Posts



Is there any way to update MalwareBytes when you as a user are not local administrator and UAC is turned on?


In my company the majority of the users are not local admin (and UAC is turned on on their computers).


They keep getting this windows that says Update available but the can only click "Later" because if they click "Update" they are told that they need local admin rights.


Please advise!

Hi Caperuzzo,


In order to update the program, you must have administrator rights.  


Are these notifications indicating a PROGRAM update or a DATABASE update?


If it is a database update, you will need to set up an update schedule within the program, so they can be updated without interaction.
