Allow programs to adjust laptop's settings
Posted on 2013-01-28
I have a Samsung laptop which I run as a Standard User. On every startup and several times thereafter one or more of the following programs ask my permission to run, requesting me to input the administrator's password.
- Easy Speedup Manager 2
- Wifi Manager
- Smart Restart Program
- Samsung Electronic GFX Control Helper.
I don't object to these programs doing whatever they are designed to do, but I think it should be enough to authorize them once. The computer should be able to remember that they are authorized. I put the question to Samsung's help but all they came up with was to change the User Account Settings to allow programs to run (not without advising me against such action) or to run my laptop as administrator, which would have the same effect.
The problem is intensified by the fact that these programs don't exist. They are parts of a package, perhaps like MS Word is a part of MS Office and you may not find Word in your list of programs. Samsung doesn't disclose the name of the program that contains the above four, nor what else that package might include and how important all of that might be for the overall functioning of the computer. Therefore, even if I could identify the program, de- and re-installing it would appear risky.
Any suggestions what I might do?
