Thats Windows UAC protecting your computer.

You can turn it off using this, but I do not recommend you do that:

User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Agree with boohbah, mine is set like that and I have no issues saving on USB drives and flash drives. UAC is useful to keep malware from getting full access to the machine, be sure to leave the screen-dimming, otherwise it's useless (as it isn't just "screen dimming", it locks out any input other than mice/keyboard, so malware cannot simply bypass it by disguising as keyboard/mouse)
