Okay, so everyone knows one of the most annoying things about Vista is the "User Account Control" permission thing that pops up about half the time asking you to allow a program to run. It hasn't bothered me too much, except for the fact that it always comes up on one of my most commonly used programs (LastFM). Instead of disabling it altogether for this one annoyance, I'd much rather just set it to allow for that one program only so I don't have to do it everytime I open it. I know this is a long shot, but is there a way to configure it for individual programs? And if not, what was Microsoft thinking not including that? It almost forces people to shut it off.

In short, there's no way to do this. I've asked for this feature during the beta testing and was turned down. I'm hoping that some clever person will program a way around this in the future - but for now the answer is just plain "no".
