Why UAC pop up for certain file operation?
When deleting a file, sometimes UAC pops up requesting confirmation,
sometimes it doesn't.

When running a .exe file, sometimes UAC pops up (usually newly downloaded
files) and sometimes it doesn't (installed .exe).

What governs this behavior? How can I make UAC not pop up on a particular
file?

Re: Why UAC pop up for certain file operation?

Hello James,

When anything requires to be ran as administrator (elevated), it will
cause UAC to ask you for permission first. You can read more about UAC
in the tutorial below though.

To add program exceptions for UAC, you can use the free
'*_Norton_UAC_Tool_*'
(http://www.symantec.com/norton/theme...=0&depthpath=0).

Hope this helps,
Shawn
