Having trouble with User Account Control

I don't know why it keeps telling me to verify PSP 8 everytime I try to work in it, I have used that program on my old desktop computer for the longest. Please help how do I disable it, I tried doing it before and my laptop settings were all messed up the icons on the screen got super large and I was so mad. PLEASE help me. What do I do now?

Hello Applepie,

What's the exact message that you are getting?

UAC, it a security notification prompt for you to approve before Windows allows a program (ex: PSP 8) to Run as administrator (elevated). You could set the UAC notification settings to "Never notify" to turn off UAC and not get anymore UAC prompts, but that would lower the security of your entire system.

If you are getting a "Open File - Security Warning" notice, then see if the tutorial below may help.

Open File - Security Warning : Unblock File

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

Thank you so much Shawn I was getting the message: "Do you want to approve this file (PSP 8) before running it?" you have helped me solve my problem, because I never want to put my Laptop in danger of having any security risk.
