Hi, see the first Similar Topic listed below (at least, it is at the moment...have a link in case it changes)? Assuming you are running Pro with admin rights ('elevated'), so will any process it calls via Programs - Before/After be. I'm not aware of any way of switching that off (unless you use the manifest trick mentioned here to lower Pro's own privileges), nor am I aware of any method of 'asking louder'.

Of course, if you're not running Pro using an admin account in the first place, whatever you configure Pro to call can't inherit privileges the account you are using doesn't have...but that Similar Topic may give you food for thought if ..\system32\... is involved.

BTW/for future ref, it might have been useful to mention what your Windows version is ;) but it's probably not relevant now.
