1663. Dialog pop up to run a program.

I have some programs that when I start each time up pops a dialog that identifies the program and manufacturer and make me authenticate that it is OK to run the program. How can I make this stop asking me? User Access Control popup

When Windows Vista was launched, User Account Control (UAC) was the most criticized and misunderstood feature. It is important for security. Many people still disable it. You should consider being more involved.

This feature has been improved in Windows 7 and Windows 8 and 10 and, even if it adds a lot to the security of the operating system, many users still choose to disable it.

Lets discuss keeping it active.

Some programs will change Windows settings and you want to have special control over these programs to make sure these settings are only changed when you want them changed.

These programs should use UAC to control them.

If you do not want the UAC to notify you when programs are installed or make changes to Windows settings you can turn off or change the notification settings for the UAC by going to the Control Panel and type uac and select "Change User Account Control settings".

Read the options and select the appropriate setting that fits your needs. Try to leave the setting as restrictive as it fits your useage.

You must be logged in as an administrator to make these changes.
