I'm running a Dell 530 Win XP Pro. Before I could double click on the program icon and it would open. Now when I double click the program icon I get this window, below. If I deselected Protect my computer or select The following user and select OK the program will open. I would prefer to eliminate the pop up window, I can't find a way to eliminate this process. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Ed

OK thats a weird one to be popping up.

The "Run As" command is for administrators on a network so that they dont have to log off the user (limited user on a network) to perform administrator tasks.

I dont know how computer savvy you are but what I would do is try and disable the Run As feature as you dont need it.

To do this you have to edit the registry by clicking on start- run- type regedit (I would backup the registry before going any furthur).

Locate the following key on each machine:


Then create a new DWORD value named HideRunAsVerb and assign it a value of 1.

(to craete a DWORD right click any where in the explorer folder - New -DWORD Value)
