I've asked this question repeatedly since the early beta days, and there doesn't appear to be a way to do this.

I hope they come out with a way to do it in the first service pack, but I doubt they will. If they did, a malicious program could fool the OS into thinking it was trusted, therefore a blanket solution (block all) is necessary.

I think it more likely that we'll see a 3rd party solution before we see a solution from Microsoft.

UAC is (IMO) a response to Microsoft telling us to use the Limited User account in XP - and us not following that advice. Also, it's likely a response to all the backlash about Microsoft being responsible/liable for security issues and compatibility. So now it's a requirement (and not a bad one IMO) - but it is a genuine PITA for those of us accustomed to XP in the Administrator mode.

While many have criticized UAC as being too easy to get around, I disagree. Each additional security step, no matter how easy to defeat, makes it one step harder for malware to infect your computer. At work I see the effects of malware on a daily basis. In general, the less security installed on a system, the more likely it is to be infected (although user habits make this a very chancy generalization) - this includes security updates and service packs.

Finally, if we do see a 3rd party solution, it's entirely possible that Microsoft will issue a security fix to prevent it. If a programmer can selectively elevate apps to run without our knowlege (of the elevation process) it isn't a very long leap of logic to see that the bad guys could use this for their own purposes.

Meanwhile I'll just keep on clicking to allow elevation! :huh:

Start/Run and type secpol.msc

Select Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Options
scroll down to

User Account Control: behaviour of the elevation prompt for admins
User Account Control: behaviour of the elevation prompt for standard users

For each line, select the desired option
Selecting "No prompt" will get rid of the annoying pop-up boxes, and will also help software load faster
User Account Control:Run All users, including admins, as standard users: Disabled
Reboot
