    Default Set spybot to run as admin all the time

    Hello all, can i have spybot always run as admin without the right click. i find i forget to do so and wind up running it twice.

    Thanks

    Yes,you should be able to do that.Just let me know which version of Spybot you have,so I can tell you the best place to set that up,and your Operating System.

    Okay,it would be best to set sdwelcome.exe to run as admin,and that should get each component in Spybot to run as administrator as well.
    Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot - Search & Destroy 2,rightclick SDWelcome.exe and select Properties,then click the Compatibility tab,and under Privilege Level,checkmark Run This Program as Administrator,then click Apply and OK.That should make it so that you'll automatically get a prompt from UAC to run as administrator when you open Spybot Start Center.
