Nouaccheck

Just doing some troubleshooting on among our 2016 servers and also came accross the complying with sheduled task - CreateExplorerShellUnelevatedTask

It appears to run explorer in an unelivated mode via the /NOUACCHECK argument It's writer is "ExplorerShellEnelevated" It is motivated to launch at job creation/modification.

You watching: Nouaccheck

Any concepts what this is? it seems to be tied at user login and if deleted or modified it comes earlier at following login.

Google argues its a virus/malware but im not so certain.

EDIT: I should include it appears on multiple server 2016/19 servers not just this specific one. It does not happen on our 2012 boxes.

The CreateExplorerShellUnelevatedTask task prevents Explorer from running elevated.

In Windows, any attempt to begin Explorer with elevation switch seems to obtain intercepted by Windows and also a CreateExplorerShellUnelevatedTask task is created and also run instead. Since the task is configured to run through the lowest privileges, Explorer never before gets run with elevation.

When Explorer is executed via the ‘/nouaccheck’ switch the CreateExplorerShellUnelevatedTask job is ignored and also Explorer is launched conventionally, it’s elevated standing inherited from the procedure that started it, as supposed.
