Hi r94ever,

Do you have an administrator account? If so, then you can change the settings to not notify you. The below tutorial will show you how, if you're not sure.
User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

If you don't have your own admin account, I'm not sure that there is anything you can do. You can try using the .reg files in the tutorial but I can't guarantee that it will work.

Hope this helps,

Yes, I have an administrator account, and I know this way can solve this problem. But if can, I want to solve this by other way not relate changing UAC setttings. Have any ways?

Just get the user to right-click the program icon and choose Run as Administrator then accept the UAC prompt.

I think that is exactly what he is trying "not to have to do"...

I think you need this for the one program:

My English is not good so I don't know how to say that thanks for your enthusiasm.

The Administrator build-in of my Computer was set a password. My account - an administrator was set password, too. And the way of seavixen32 is still have UAC prompt in next times.
