Windows 7 - StarCraft Brood Wars Fix

1. open notepad
2. type the following:

taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe
C:"Program Files (x86)""Starcraft""StarCraft.exe"
start explorer.exe

Where the 2nd line is your installation folder, which may vary depending on where you installed it, and yes you have to use the quotation marks or it won't work.

3. Save the file with the extension .bat (batch file) where you can find it easly.
4. Double click on it and play starcraft, this will close the explorer (explorer.exe) and reopen it when you close Starcraft.

You can still have other programs open like winamp, skype, whatever, it works

Got this off another site it has wroked for mega man and may resolve some issues for others to i thought it would be nice to have here for refrence.

But then you are disabling the "UAC Consent Pop-up" in the process, which leaves your computer at risk for those who use it (although some users are still protected by it due to how the computer was originally set up.)

I still get the UAC popups even after disabling explorer.exe
I run starcraft with all the settings checked in the compatibility tab.

There was an update from Microsoft that prevents it from happening. In other words, UAC runs right from OS Initialization.

Also, my Starcraft plays fine. I played AHappyCat(R) twice and did not drop or crash. Did you use the digital download installation or the CD Installation?
