Advanced Secuirty - Auditing tab

solac used Ask the Experts™
I have Windows 2012 server, joined to the AD domain.  My AD account is member of Domain Admins and Enterprise Admins groups.

When opening the property of the C: drive or a folder below the C: drive, and go to Advance Security, Auditing tab, I get this message "You must be an administrator or have been given the appropriate privileges to view the auditing properties of this object"  I click continue to view the auditing properties.

Can any one help me to bypass the "Continue" button when I have the admins rights?

This is by design so. When you open the Explorer, you are not an admin you are standard user.

It is one way , to disable UAC, BUT I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT, Extremely Security problematic.

indeed and UAC will kick in with such privileged access
To occasionally run an application with a full administrator access token, use the following procedure....must be logged on as a local administrator or provide the credentials of a member of the local Administrators group.

1.Locate the program icon or a shortcut in Windows Explorer.

2.Right-click the program icon or shortcut, and then click Run as administrator.

3.When the UAC message is displayed, do one of the following:
•If you are logged on as a standard user, or if UAC is configured to always require credentials, enter the appropriate administrative credentials, and then click OK.
•If you are logged on as an administrator and UAC is not configured to always require credentials, click Yes to start the application.

Alternatively, you can consider
Step 1: Create A Task Which Runs The Program You Want e.g. set "Run with highest privileges" to sets the required task to run with administrative permissions.
Step 2: Create A Shortcut To The Newly Created Task e.g. schtasks /run /tn "Task Name"
