I have 2 programs on two seperate computers where UAC comes up and asks me if I wish to run the programs. These programs do not require administrator rights (Truecrypt and iSpy) and the check beside "Run program as administrator" is not checked in either the shortcut or the actual executable file. Can someone shed some light on this?

Hi -
2 quick questions -
Have the programs been updated in any way, and do you see the UAC Shield beside / on the desktop icons ??

Thanks -

If you haven't actually installed truecrypt onto the PC then it will bring up UAC. However if it's installed then it shouldn't be an issue. If you run Truecrypt as an admin it screws with the container creation process. I know because I have done it. But if you run it from a USB or an external drive then it requires UAC to be approved. Just so that it can run correctly.

OKay, but what about iSpy? I does not need administrator rights; well it didn't when I first installed it. Any ideas?
