ThreatLocker: Elevation Pop-Ups

Modified on Tue, 30 Nov, 2021 at 8:58 AM

ThreatLocker is an Application Whitelisting tool that is used to protect you from ransomware attacks and stop malicious files from running in your environment.  

Requesting Administrator Permission

A type of request popup you may see is a Request Elevation popup. When you try to run a program as an Administrator, you will receive the following popup. 


You will also receive a User Account Control (UAC) popup from Microsoft Windows. If you have local administrator credentials, you can input them in the UAC prompt. If you do not have local admin credentials, you can click 'Request Elevation'.  

The Request to Elevate an Application window is filled out the same as the Request to Run a New Program window.  

You may input a message explaining why you need admin privileges for this program.


You can also input your email address so you can receive a notification when your request is processed.
