Windows 7: "Do you want to allow the following program . . . "

"Do you want to allow the following program . . . "

Win 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

In another thread I explained how I had to do a complete reinstall of Win 7. This wasn't my first reinstall but I did have some issues. Now those issues are fixed and I'm getting to reinstall all of my software.

I have a little program that lives in the System Tray and lets me know when I have email. I've been using it for years and have never had a problem before. Even with my previous installations of Windows 7, I had no problems. Come to think of it, it didn't give me any issues until after I installed SP1. I think.

Anyway. . . . now when I start the program, I get that pesky message "Do you want to allow the following program . . . to make changes to the computer."

Any idea why I'm suddenly getting this message and any ideas on how to make it stop?

That is the User Account Control. You may want to disable it. Here's a tutorial to change the settings of User Acount Control:

I like that the UAC provides an extra layer of security so I wouldn't disable it just for one program unless absolutely necessary. This tutorial (option four might be the best bet) will show you how to have a program run with full elevated rights and privileges.

I'm looking for a program capable of interpreting one key and changing it to another, like a middle man. So, in a simple example, output the letter "b" when I push "a". Or in a more complex example, convert things like movements of a joystick into movements of a mouse, or triggers on the joystick...
