UAC triggered everytime mbam is started


Recommended Posts

Only way is to disable UAC, which is not recommended.

The reason behind this is that Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware needs administrator privileges. How do you expect it to scan a hard drive and delete malicious files without administrator privileges. There is just no way around this architecture.

I hope I'm not being rude or ignorant, but if there's no way around it, why don't other security software products, like Avira, trigger UAC?
