General Questions (Free Home Updater) / Re: Administrator Permission?

My question still stands.

You do not need admin permission to search the Registry.

If I have changed the options and only want to be shown which updates are need, there is no need for admin permission.

I take care to run my Windows logins as a standard user, not as admin - and PatchMyPC always needing admin permission seems to be at odds with that. 

Yea, I know - if I don't like don't use it.  But PatchMyPC is a valuable app that has chosen the least secure path when the program is first loaded.  Maybe consideration might be given to creating a version of PatchMyPC that does not initially need admin permission?

Thanks.

Why does PatchMyPC require administrator permission when starting?
