How do I get UAC to stop asking me about a program I run every day?

I have a program that I run all the time that needs to be run as an administrator, so I changed the properties of its shortcut to run as administrator. Every time I launch it, UAC comes up and says an unidentified program wants to run, Allow or Cancel. And so I have to click to allow it.

How do I get Vista to stop doing that for this specific program?

You can't, unless you disable UAC. The run as administrator without UAC is in windows 7 and up.

Man, Vista is just insufferable isn't it? lol

Well, even though you are probably right, I just can't believe there is no way around this. It just can't be that bad right?? :P  Maybe I will still find a way...

You need to use Task Scheduler.
