UAC prompts appear at the bottom left corner on my screen. Anyone knowing why? (Please don't tell me to disable UAC completely. :) )

 

EDIT: This is the case for some software only. MBAM is one of them.

I don't think you can change the location. At least on Windows 7, I don't have Vista, the UAC box comes up in two different locations. One location when I type UAC in the search box and another location when I open CMD as an administrator. Opening CMD as administration puts it in the lower left. Opening UAC from the search box puts it in the middle of the screen. 

 

Windows can normally be fixed by holding Ctrl while closing the window by clicking the X in the upper right but this didn't work for me.

Thanks for sharing your similar experience.
