I've previously posted a workaround for the Skip UAC issue: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/59402-turning-off-giving-ccleaner-permission-everytime-windows-10-boots-workround/?tab=comments#comment-324431 I'll repeat the basic steps here: That resets the scheduled task for Windows 10, it should be similar for Win7 or Win8 and is worth trying.   I haven't found a workround for the INI issue yet though.
