Type secpol.msc into Start-Run to open the Local Security Policy snap-in.
Expand the Local PolicesSecurity Options folder.
Scroll down to
"User Account Control: Behaviour of the elevation prompt for administrator"
Double click and set to: "Elevate without prompting".
Then Restart the computer.Alternatively this can be set in the registry (then reboot to apply)

Regedit script:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin"=dword:00000000

This doesn't have anything to do with UAC, keeping track of files downloaded from the Internet is the job of the Firewall service in Windows 7 and Vista.

There was some advice on the previous pages on not keeping the internet zones information. I might add changing this setting in Internet options>Security tab>Internet zone

I think the problem is that I do not have administrator privileges. I logged into the built-in administrator account and yet I do not have administrator privileges.

I dont know if I mentioned this before, but this problem started after I took out all components to clean the chassis. After that I did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Since then the computer has acted strange.

Sweet Jesus, Tech, it's not the bloody UAC. Security warnings you posted are not related to it, I assure you. And although I have Norton Internet Security and I'm not familiar with ESET, I can tell you that administrator privileges are NOT ENOUGH to kill Norton's processes if Tamper Protection is on. I suspect ESET utilizes similar technology.

Stop repeating yourself and try my suggestion or this one.

I've always been able to shut down the program I wanted. I never got security warnings when I would install a new program. That is why I created a thread. It is not the first time I run Windows 7.
