I'd advise against turning UAC off. I have done it before myself but found that I kept forgetting to turn it back on and I use Windows Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials.

The dangers can be best explained by the folks in the System Security forum of SevenForums.
That's why UAC should be always kept at max level (Vista, working mode ):

I know where the Java jre-6u22-windows-i586-s.exe file is. However, that is just the installer file. I don't know the name of the actual application file which in the Program Files (86) Java folder. There are numerous application files there.

The file extension ".exe" means it is an executable file, meaning, it's an application (program) It is not an installer file.

Java jre-6u22-windows-i586-s.exe is the file I downloaded which resides in my "Uitlities" folder. I ran this file which installed Java Run Environment 6 Update 22. There is a Java folder in my Program Files (x86) folder. However, there are numerous application programs in that folder. I would need to know which EXE file to deal with and what to do with it to stop the UAC request from popping up each time Java is invoked.

kenburenga, can you list these .exe files, or take a snip of them?

ktab.exe
orbd.exe
pack200.exe

I chatted with Microsoft support this morning who advised that since every Java request is different, Windows 7 cannot determine which is legitimate and which is not, so UAC is invoked each time. They advised turning UAC off as long as I have anti-virus software installed. They said UAC is an added feature to Windows 7 in the event the user doesn't have, or until the under installs, anti-virus software.

ken,
Both of my computers do not have Java installed.

I tried the very link giving you problems, in fact, posted your msg into an outlook email draft, and ctrl-leftclicked on link and link opened up in firefox without any problems.

I do not have java ionstalled and have no problems.


Sorry about the delay in replying but I was trying to duplicate another user's problem-unsuccessfully-although did learn much on the journey.
