How can we improve the SMA (K1000)?

Bypass UAC while running scripts

This is a follow up ticket to continue tracking an add on thread to a ticket which is now completed:

Bypass UAC while running scripts:
Running scripts as System does not involve UAC. If running scripts as a User, UAC applies. That case is still under consideration for a future release.

    I bypassed UAC by running scripts in Powershell - Under Tasks>Verify>Launch a Program>File Powershell.exe
    Under parameters
    Start-Process powershell -verb runas C:\{Path to script or batch file}

    our implementation of UAC meets the CIS benchmark settings, meaning that system can not always elevate to the level to make system changes (yes its horrible), this is the one feature that SCCM has that the Kace currently does not (I suspect SCCM is using the scheduled task engine to elevate)
