Ever since the latest version of Windows 10 was installed (version 1511 Pro), I've been getting near constant UAC prompts from Exchange Activesync Policies Broker. It doesn't matter if I accept them or not, they keep coming back. I've also seen similarly constant prompts on my laptop from Networks, but that hasn't shown since I recently formatted and re-installed Windows 10.
I am not using Exchange Server. I only have IMAP accounts and one outlook.com account registered in Outlook 2016 which I believe uses EAS.
I'm not very worried about it being malicious, but its really starting to get on my nerves. I'd like to turn it off, but failing that, one would think that Microsoft would make their own software run silently if it is required.
For what its worth, I have Office 2016 installed.
A quick Google search returns only foreign language forum posts and garbage search sites like findeen.co.uk and 2search.pixub.com.
A more recent search has yielded the possibility that it may be related to Visual Studio, which I do have installed, but no possible fixes are offered that I can see.
I have tried the following:
- Update Visual Studio 2015 to the latest revision
- Checked to make sure that my Windows Account is active (OS is not requesting verification) (as per last post here)
