screen when I program opens or closes using nVidia drivers 100.54? My screen turns checkered or blinds for a split second and I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

Do you see this happening only before a UAC elevation prompt appears, or before any window/application opens in general?

I just changed my shortcut and the You have to be an Administrator window popped up. When I heard the .wav thats when I get it.

Ah, that's an issue that the display driver has when the system switches to Secure Desktop during privilege elevation. The ATI drivers on my Tablet PC deal with this much better than the NVIDIA ones on my desktop do.

Until a driver update fixes this, there's a workaround you can use. Hit Winkey + R and enter gpedit.msc in the Run box. Now, in the Group Policy Editor window, expand Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies, and select Security Options. Then, in the right-side pane, scroll down and double-click the "User Account Control: Switch to secure desktop..." item and set it to Disabled.

This, unfortunately, disables a good security feature, but it's the only workaround until we get updated drivers that fix the flickering issue.

Does this disable "getting permission" to install things and to make changes to my system? Boy thats annoying as hell... If I want to change the resolution or whatever I should click apply and that's it.. I don't want you need permission.

gpedit.msc doesn't work when type into the "run" window. I can't locate Group Policy Editor.

Yeah, my Intel integrated chipset handles UAC elevations a LOT better than my Nvidia drivers. It's sad to hear that they STILL haven't worked out such a basic issue in the current driver set.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
