I am attempting to disable UAC on a laptop, but cannot launch elevated command line via any previously recommended methods. When i attempt to disable UAC through standard cmd.exe, i get Access Denied. When i right click cmd.exe and select 'run as administrator' only standard command line is opened.
How can i open elevated command line without using the right-click or equivalent keyboard short-cut method?

You need to clarify what "previously recommended methods" you have tried.

The most common way of gaining Admin at a command prompt is thus:

Open the Start Menu, type "cmd" (no quotes). Then hold down CTRL, SHIFT and press Enter.
