Getting UAC prompt for a domain standard user.

EPSrookie 81 Reputation points

The user was part of Local Administration before, but now it's a standard user. The user is always getting UAC prompt when opening any MMC tool, like task manager or cmd.
The user has a local profile.
When he logs into another computer then he doesn't get this prompt. When someone else logs into his computer then they don't get the prompt.

So, we can't say there could be issue with the user profile, or any settings in the specific machine.

Can anyone suggest what can be checked here?
We can't change Group Policy to hide UAC as this will change behaviour for everyone but not everyone is getting the issue.

    Hello there,

    UAC is designed to warn you anytime a program runs that needs to do things outside the scope of a regular user. It also allows you to use alternate credentials if the user that launched it isn't an admin.

    As this users is not getting the UAC on other devices this must be a corrupted or wrong setting only on this device.

    On the server open computer manager and check the administrators group. Verify that it correctly has the user in question listed as a member. It sounds like for some reason the user is not getting admin privileges like you think they should beb only on this direction machine.
