Windows 7: How to undo permission for a specific program?

How to undo permission for a specific program?

I know that the answer to my question is easy, but when it comes to working with Permissions, I am an absolute dud. Anyway, I have two programs that I want to have open automatically when I boot up, Thunderbird and Maxthon. I have placed their shortcuts into the Startup folder. They do open, but when Maxthon opens, the User Control Box opens asking to allow program to make changes to the computer. This is my mistake in that when I set up Maxthon I inadvertently must have clicked a button that directed a permission OK. But, BTW, Maxthon shortcut->Properties->Advanced button->run as admin NOT checked??? I would like to undo the permission request so that Maxthon will open on boot up without having to do anything...How?

How about Maxthon shortcut->Properties->Advanced button->then check run as admin?

Seems to have worked, thanks.
BYW, I want to see if I got this straight. When I selected "run as admin," it meant that I didn't need to ask any permissions...right? So, if I set up another porgram and select "run as admin," I won't be bothered buy having to OK a program's opening...right?

Yes, I believe that is the equivalent of turning off UAC for that specific program.
