Other UAC Event Logs

Besides security auditing (which is not enabled by default), UAC provides two additional logs within Event Viewer:

  • Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\UAC\Operational Logs UAC errors, such as processes that fail to handle elevation requirements correctly
  • Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\UAC-FileVirtualization \Operational Logs UAC virtualization details, such as virtualized files that are created or deleted

If you are experiencing a problem and you think it might be related to UAC, check these logs for any related information.
