Windows 7: Turning off administrator notifications for specific programs.

Turning off administrator notifications for specific programs.


I am a heavy internet user who uses alot of programs that often need administrator privileges. However as time passes I get annoyed with all those notifications that keep popping up. So I was wondering if there would be an option to turn off those notifications for specific programs only. Like if I click on a program running as administrator, I won't get the popup, however I want that same popup for another program. I tried looking on f1 help and online on other fora but the only thing I ever find is how to completely turn off these notifications for all my programs which I don't want.
