If there is this item, it works properly in the background
There is no problem if there are the above items, but depending on the environment, there may not be the above items, and it may not run in the background. If the above item is not present, adjust the registry and restart the computer to enable Local Security Authority Protection.
The procedure for setting the record is as follows.
- Launch the Registry Editor (press Windows + R, type regedit and enter)
- Open “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa”
- Check if there is “RunAsPPL” on the right side. If not, right-click on the right side and select New (D) Value → DWORD (32-bit), type RunAsPPL and enter.
- Double click “RunAsPPL”, put “2” in “Value data (V)” and enter.
If you restart your computer with this, an event (Source: Wininit / Event ID: 12) will be displayed in the event viewer stating “LSASS.exe was started as a protected process at level 4.” , “Local Security Authority Protection” must be enabled.
If that doesn’t work, add a DWORD called “RunAsPBLBoot” and set the value to “2”.
Now restart your computer and Local Security Authority Protection should be enabled.
