Windows 7: User Permissions for Programs

User Permissions for Programs

I want to install the AI utilities that came with my Asus P8P67 Motherboard. When I have them installed, however, all of the non-admin accounts keep getting a string of 5-6 admin password requests to allow the programs to make changes. This happens upon every login and is more than a little tedious.

I tried to run them as an administrator but that didn't change anything.

Any suggestions other than not installing the utilities?

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit Professional if it matter.

Thank you.

I take it you want to give non-admin accounts some level of power over the programs?

Go into the admin account.

Find the utilities .exe file (usally something like C:\program files\Asus\TurboV\Turbov.exe) and right click the .exe>Properties>Security>Edit>Left Click the User you want to give the privileges to>Click the appropriate privileges box you want>Click Apply
