Anyway, thanks for the chat ...cheers and Merry Xmas
Actually, There is something similar to this.
It is called SRP (Software Restriction Policy) or AppLocker.

But as I can see you don't want complications, So I will not recommend you setup it.

But If I am mistaken and you are interested on it:
How to make a disallowed-by-default Software Restriction Policy
For Users of Software Restriction Policies - Wilders Security Forums
Geek of all Trades: AppLocker: IT?s First Security Panacea?
AppLocker Step-by-Step Guide


Or if you want similar thing with more automation, take a look at Defencewall (new version includes firewall aswell):
It's easy and light program

If you want help and support feel free to contact me.
Also one of Forum members Creer knows about it more in details.
In official Forum of the software main developer (Ilya Rabinovich) gives great support and answers all question himself and very active..

But in my opinion you seem to be person who dosen't like complications, so it's up to you and I think for you it's better keep it simple/

Richc: I know it is getting into the philosophical area but I think there should be a simpler way or simpler version of this security 'business' . You have two computer users in late 50s and I am supposed to learn about inherited permission and whether I am a system user, pc user admin user etc etc.

I have a number of simple utility programs that I have been using for quite some time and I don't understand why I should always be asked (when the settings in User Control are set to a higher level) whether I want this program to make changes to the computer when what I just want to open it and use. But this is a discussion for another day.

Thanks again to all of you.
Since you want this to go as smoothly as possible, do not have a password for your Administrator. When the system asks for Admin permission, you only have to click instead of putting in a password.

Thanks bigmckfor the suggestion. I dont have a password...I never set up any password for'any users as I am just convinced that sooner or later some glitch will prevent me from logging into the computer. I know it is overdone....

JAV...I checked the links you sent. That application locker is only available for Enterprise and Ultimate versions of Windows 7. I have The Home version. At least it appears my simplistic 'demand' is not so outreagous, as this appllocker is exactly what I could somebody already thought about it. Perhaps it will be also available for all versions of windows.
Thanks again.

Is there any simple way to get rid of these messages forever? I don't care if the KGB or CIA or anybody want to get into my computer, send me viruses, they can do whatever they want. Just let me know how to do it so I will NEVER see these two words "administrative permission" again in my life.
Just wait till something really bad hits you, and you figure out you need a day and a half to repair the mess. I like to assign dollar values, so lets say you make $10/hr, thats $120 gone.
