jist kurous. Why do you have the need to run notepad as admin? What can't
you do by default that admin affords you privileges to do?
I know you don't need me to preach to you, but I'm asking to learn why.
"Running an app with elevated privileges exposes far more risk than any of
the options described earlier. It becomes very difficult to defend the
system against a malicious user or malicious software when there's an app
running as admin. A simple example: Run "Notepad" as admin, then choose
File/Open - that dialog is now a little Explorer-like window that gives you
full, admin-level access to the entire file system, and even the ability to
launch programs as admin. That can be exploited by a malicious user, or by
malware pumping keystrokes or window messages into the elevated program."
