    So every time I turn on my computer and attempt to start cortex it asks to make changes to my computer, I have no idea why I click allow every time and I can't figure out why it keeps asking

    It requires such privileges for boosting (closing other applications and some windows services).
    If you have administrator privilege on your windows account - right click on the Cortex shortcut - Properties, go to Advanced and then check Run as Administrator checkbox - apply settings.

    I can't seem to find what you're talking about, I right clicked pressed properties and I see numerous things that say advanced none of which have a admin permission checkbox.

    It shouldn't. There's another "workaround" for this - disable UAC.

    How exactly? Sorry I'm not the smartest when it comes to computers.

    Agree, but only if you don't have knowledge about computers, and click everything "next, next" like a maniac.

    You can also try to uninstall cortex app, and use a CCleaner to cleanup windows registry, then install it again. It's not normal, that it requires some admin permission.

    Yeah so I've tried it, I've tried everything and it still does it. This is what I see each time I try and start it, maybe this will help some
