As more programs are written to expect the UAC prompt I believe that this issue will become rarer, so It's just a matter of time rather than anything that may be tweaked.
I somehow want to believe your description of problem is accurate, but given that I just downloaded maya trial edition <brand new from a well respected vendor>, and when I started installer, it minimized to taskbar immediately.
I could contact audodesk but I dont want to waste their time if it really is a issue with uac/Windows 7.
P.s.-I dont know if it matters, but I used 'run' to start installer, as directed on their website.
