I know that UAC is one more extra level of security, but there is a program that I use often that continually asks me if I should allow it to run or not. IS there not any way that I can make it so that Vista trusts this program (e.g., like it does Word and Excel) and stop asking me this?

Thank-you. I had found this earlier and it was not QUITE what I wanted, but upon further examination of the overall blag, this:


was pretty well what I needed. I just wish I could easily tell Vista the Program "X" is as reliable as Word.

Anyway, thanks!
