UAC prompt for avant browser?

I'm told by one person that UAC prompt is normal security measure for any software interacting with microsoft its all about UAC settings, and another person says I shouldnt need to have UAC appear when I open the avant browser. can someone here tell me if avant is incompatible with windows 7 because when I go to right click the avant browser icon and click troubleshoot compatibilty the end result is that it says - incompatible application - even though the avant software did download and i can use it normally after clicking yes on the UAC prompt and the browser works fine. I know I'm not missing SP2 but it said somewhere else avant was designed originally in XP SP2. that shouldnt be a problem should it?

avant's website say's it "should be" compatible with windows 7. you may want to switch to another browser until they have any kinks left over worked out.

I uninstalled avant browser and installed orca browser...no more UAC prompt - they are much the same in appearance and function with some slight differences. I guess orca works with windows 7 and avant does not...entirely.

If a browser is asking for elevated permissions then yes I would say it's incompatible and needs a rewrite

avant browser requires extra permissions to load
is it normal for avant to ask every time when opening the browser - do you want the unknown program to make changes to your computer ? - or did it install wrong? the compatibility test said it works in XP SP2... i have windows 7 so is there an issue?
