From my experience and what I just read online, there doesn't seem to be a way to 'white list' certain programs for a normal user.

I don't know what kind of programs you have on your startup list. But on mine I have things like a Nokia phone client, bunch of Intel stuff and MSE. None of those seem to trigger the admin password and yes I run my computer with a standard user account like you do.

Maybe you could check your startup config and un-tick any un-needed programs from running at startup. That should minimize the amount of prompts.

One reason why I do not use a password on the admin account. The advantage of a password is questionable in my mind anyhow.
