Microsoft thinks it’s doing you a favor with the security features that were introduced in Windows Vista and continue to run under Windows 7 and Windows 8. I’m talking about those User Account Control (UAC) permission dialog boxes that pop up whenever you run an application. It’s fine the first few times, then it gets really old really fast! Want to take control of these dialog boxes? You can, with today’s discount software promotion, UAC-GRABBER 2020!

UAC-GRABBER 2020 lets you control whether the User Account Control dialog box asks for permission when you run specific applications. With UAC-GRABBER 2020, you won’t have to break your stride answering permission dialogs when you’re busy. Yes, you’ll still be protected by the Windows security system, but it won’t bother you for specific applications that you know to be safe.

Bonus features include an alternate boot menu for Windows 8 users! So start improving your workflow today, and significantly reduce your level of annoyance, with a copy of UAC-GRABBER 2020!

The program also has the following two features: Favorite Directory and Autostart Directory. The Favorite Directory is provided for faster access to your favorite programs or files! The Autostart Directory is simlar to the Autostart of Microsoft, only that the programs are started with admin rights!

    Please note the new features added in version 2020:
  • Improved icon display in Treeview view.
  • Unauthorized drag-and-drop operations via our program window are displayed with the entry prohibition symbol for different rights.
  • Changes in the Windows start menu are also displayed in the manager
  • Various optimizations
  • Switching between admin and user mode
  • Minus-Icon to remove shortcuts from all directories
  • Plus-Icon to add new entries in all directories
  • Some GUI and performance optimizations
  • New language French and Spanish
  • Some improvements and options

Thomas Klabunde Hi,
I do not understand your problem. Could you describe in more detail again, preferably via email (

@Dmitry Bordako:
In some points I'll give you quite sure. We are a very small company and therefore relatively unknown. Marketing takes place mainly in our complimentary actions such as here at BitsDuJour.

At this point I'd like to point explicitly that we disable NOT the Microsoft User Account Control. Only if the user so desires or previously set up, it can start special programs or documents with admin rights without confirming the UAC dialog. So the software abylon UAC GRABBER to the Windows UAC does not replace but supplement!

In principle, we support the safety system from Microsoft. We see too many weaknesses and problems. However, we have so far is still remembered no better idea. We develop our software constantly and will make us even once thought of as the UAC GRABBER could be improved. For ideas and suggestions are always open.

That it does not work with some with Adobe shotcuts, is also mysterios us.

Admins following scenario is certainly very interesting.
He can create a batch file with a corresponding content. This can either be added to the Favorites or Startup folders. After the file is opened using our software, is shown without the UAC dialog question.
I think this is a very interesting feature for many administrators! This should of course not only work with batch file, but with a variety of other files and programs.

@Daniel Gaudet
Sorry. but each license is only valid for a computer.

@M M:
Please contact the BitDuJour team.

D.B. @Thomas Klabunde:

Thomas, I understand that UAC-Grabber doesn't disable or replace the actual UAC.
I'm taking an issue with *how* it does its job.

It's not a good idea to put admin's tools (or batch files) into Favorites, "All Programs", or any other user-level folders.
Users shouldn't be able to [easily] see, run, or delete such programs accidentally or out of curiosity.

Also, system tools are a plenty. Some admins routinely use dozens of them. That's where UAC prompts get really annoying.
But it would be a tedious task to put so many programs into UAC-Grabber's list one by one.
So some of us will certainly appreciate an option to specify a wildcard.
I mean there should be a way to tell UAC-Grabber to suppress UAC prompts for *all* programs from a certain directory, for example.

And one more feature suggestion: UAC-Grabber should allow automated management.
This, at the very least, includes non-attended installations and settings export/import.
Otherwise you will not be able to sell it to admins who manage dozens (or even hundreds) of PCs.

Thomas Klabunde Hi Dmitry,
thanks again for all the suggestions. As a software developer, the viewing angle is many times very one-sided. Therefore, we are very happy if we experience and opinions are received from the user side.

We will record the suggestions and see what we can when and how to implement them.

Ronn Blankenship I've been trying to download the installation software for something like 2 hours now and never have gotten past about 55% downloaded. I had really been looking forward to getting this one and am quite disappointed with the failure. Can you help me? Thanks! (I have sent a copy of this message to abylonsoft support as well.)

Que La @Ronn Blankenship, I have just sent you an email.

Di Matlock I posted some questions about this when it was offered again yesterday, but there is no "conversation" her more recent than 2016 when I follow the ling again today. Wtf?

Thomas Klabunde Hi,
@Di Matlock: I have not yet understood the sorting of comments here at BDJ. After the action is over, they are somehow reordered and the last comments are somewhere in the middle. It's best to open all comments and search for the usernames.

Di Matlock @Mr Klabunde:

Thanks for your response:

So the "2017" in the email was just a mistake.

I have no idea what "covermount" might mean in this context, and looking at in translation doesn't help. Again, is the difference anywhere explained?

I gather I can install either one or both sequentally before September and then choose which to register later.

Thomas Klabunde Hello Di Matlock,
the term covermount comes from the computer magazines.
The following differences exist between the covermount and the official version:
- Functions -> none
- Covermount only for installation on private computers (or for testing)
- Covermount support only via the contact form on the homepage
- Covermounts get only 60% update discount instead of the normal 90%.
- Covermounts can only be installed within a limited time.

I hope this answers your questions. Otherwise just write again.

Thomas Klabunde @Constantin Florea:
Thank you for the correction.

@Ken Stecher:
I'm sorry, but sometimes technology...

You're welcome.

Also in the future we will offer free covermounts via BitsDuJour.
We would be very happy about a paid update, a rating, a like, a recommendation or suggestions, e.g. via our homepage
