RE: completely disabling warning popups and administrator access
With UAC disabled, and if the account you are logged into is an
administrative one, then, by default, you are running "Run as Administrator",
if I'm understanding your question. E.g., Command Prompt will say
"Administrator: Command Prompt" in the tile bar, or Run will say "This task
will be created with administrative privileges", without an "extra step".
