    Windows 7 UAC.. is that it?

    Just getting used to Windows 7, and I have a question about the UAC. Is that all my choices?? I have one program that loads on startup that always requires my approval. Is there some way to give a constant consent without having to turn UAC off? It seems I have a choice between block everything period, ask me every time (block screen), ask me every time (with a little icon), or don't stop anything, ever?

    At least UAC is better in 7 than it was in Vista; you needed a UAC approval to approve a UAC action.

    I've got it set on defaut. It seems the difference between the two middle ones is that the higher level shows me on the screen, and the lower setting doesn't show me. I wish there was a "remember my decision" kind of button. If I set it to run as admin, will that prevent me from having to approve every single time?

    Following response found in the net:

    ...You could also right click the icon/program you want to run and "run as administrator" it should only ask you once in uac that way.

    Another mention,
    "I know nothing."
    Cheers.

    I can't stand UAC. First thing I turn off after a clean install of Vista or 7.

    Ok, minor update. I tried running the program as administrator, no joy. I haven't tried the other option, I will try that soon. Thanks for the replies so far, I do appreciate the brain power
