    Is there a setting in UAC (Windows 7 x64 Home Premium) in which it will automatically deny elevation requests in a Standard User account, but still use the right click "run as administrator".

    Example, one downloaded an installer and double click on it, in a normal environment, it will prompt for admin credentials. What I want it to behave it is that there will be no prompt when double clicking on it, but I can still use the right click "run as administrator" if I want a program to run as admin.

    You may be looking for this: -http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd835564(v=WS.10).aspx

    If you got Group Policy Editor, you could use that, otherwise registry "hack" (backup first).

    I think the right-click will still work (I haven't tested this stuff in a very long time!).

    -edit-

    This guide should assist you: -http://maximumpcguides.com/windows-7/set-user-account-control-to-automatically-deny-standard-users-an-elevated-request-in-windows-7/
