My current process of 'explorer.exe' is UAC enabled (has elevated permissions), but any program I start using the Start Menu etc. also has UAC enabled now.

How can I disable this? So, how can I run an application without elevated permissions from an application with elevated permissions?


By running as a normal user, for example runas allows you to do this.

And I don't see a point in having explorer.exe run elevated? Can you explan why you did that?
