Heya folks.

I am using Windows 7 Pro.

I've noticed that a fair number of games and programs elicit a response from User Access Control every time they launch. Generally this makes for a slight annoyance; I simply click "yes, I do want this program to launch." However, I have come across programs that actually crash because of the UAC interruption.

The only UAC controls I have found set the level of interference (no help there) or turn it off completely (fixes the problem but leaves my system without UAC enabled and requires a reboot). I have also tried "run as administrator" in compatibility mode, no help there.

Is there a way to create a list of trusted programs for UAC?

If not: assuming I know what programs I am launching, what are the security ramifications of running Windows 7 with UAC disabled?

Use TweakUAC and set to "quiet mode"
