User Account Control

I just got this from this article ...

http://www.winsupersite.com/faq/windows_7.asp

User Account Control improvements. Windows Vista's most reviled feature is being completely overhauled to be more customizable. Four settings will be available:

1. Never notify (least secure). The user is not notified when a program tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is not notified when they make changes to Windows settings or when programs try to do so.

2. Only notify me when programs try to make changes to my computer. The user is not notified when a program tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is not notified when they make changes to Windows settings. However, the user is notified when programs try to make changes to the computer, including Windows settings.

3. Always notify me. The user is notified when a program tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is also notified when they make changes to Windows settings or when programs try to do so.

4. Always notify me and wait for my response (most secure). The user is notified when a program tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is also notified when they make changes to Windows settings or when programs try to do so.

Mine is always set on 4 so I know what updates are being installed so I can scan them with AVG.

I have installed Warhammer Online and it works fine but whenever I go to start it up I get this annoying window that says "Do you want the following program to make changes to this computer". How can I turn this so it doesn't do this everytime I start up Warhammer?
