Windows 7: Wireless connection prompt to make changes to system

Wireless connection prompt to make changes to system

I installed the driver. But when I logon using a standard user account and tried to connect to my wireless network, it asked if I allow the device to make changes to the system. How can I prevent this from happening? It looks like it tried to install something and need to elevate privilege.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried turning down UAC to it's lowest setting?

User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Why not just use an Admin account instead.

Thanks chev but I don't want to turn off UAC or use the Admin account for security reason.

In that case enjoy the security prompt.

There has to be away. Why does it try to make change to the system every time? I wouldn't mind to just assign Admin privilege to that particular program using runas but I can't get to its "Properties" because it's the little wireless bar in the right corner. Do you know a way to get to it so I can assign the runas with /user & /savecred?
