Program Shortcut Requires UAC Permission
I have a desktop icon for opening CorelPaint Shop Pro Photo XI that has a yellow security sheild on it (not the case for 10 other program shortcuts). Executing the shortcut brings up an "Unknown Publisher" UAC warning. Not a show stopper but annoying as all get out. I have been playing with the Security properties for the shortcut and the exe file to get this to go away but no joy.
Does anyone have a step by step to stop this behavior?

Automatic Permission For 1 Program
I am building a HTPC and using XBMC to access all my media. I am trying to set it up so that XBMC automatically starts when the PC turns on. I am using Eventghost for this. XBMC has some great wiki's on how to do this, but all of them assume you want XBMC to boot as a shell and not boot explorer. In the future I may want to do this, but right now I am still in the design/set up stage and want explorer to run so I can go back and forth between it and XBMC.My problem is arriving when Eventghost tries to launch XBMC. I need to provide permission for it to run under an admin to make changes to my pc.I want to grant this automatically.I know I can lower my security settings for all programs, but I don't want to do that. I just want to allow XBMC to launch with admin permissions.I already have the "run as administer" box checked.My security is set to high so it still asks me. How can I change this so that XBMC will launch with admin permissions without having to grant it each time yet retain the security settings I have?

How To Undo Permission For A Specific Program
I know that the answer to my question is easy, but when it comes to working with Permissions, I am an absolute dud. Anyway, I have two programs that I want to have open automatically when I boot up, Thunderbird and Maxthon. I have placed their shortcuts into the Startup folder. They do open, but when Maxthon opens, the User Control Box opens asking to allow program to make changes to the computer. This is my mistake in that when I set up Maxthon I inadvertently must have clicked a button that directed a permission OK. But, BTW, Maxthon shortcut->Properties->Advanced button->run as admin NOT checked??? I would like to undo the permission request so that Maxthon will open on boot up without having to do anything.

How To Allow Unknown Publisher Program To Run Without Permission
How do I stop Windows 7 (64Bit) from asking "Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?" i.e. How do I give permanent permission just to specific programs to allow them to run?
e.g. Everything (desktop search)
e.g. Dreamweaver MX2004
e.g. Disk Defrag (Auslogistics)
e.g. Malwarebyte's Ant-Malware
e.g. Hitman Pro

Installed Program In XP Mode And No Shortcut
I've got Virtual PC/Windows XP installed and working, but when I install a program in Windows XP mode and create a shortcut in the "All Users" folder I don't see it in the Windows 7 start menu, as a matter of fact I don't even have the "Virtual Windows XP Applications" folder in the Win 7 start menu.

The Application-specific Permission Settings Do Not Grant Local Activation Permission
I noticed in my Event Viewer that I have literally THOUSANDS of errors with source listed as DistributedCOM and event ID 10016. It logs an error event about 4 times per minute on this.
General info tab says:
"The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
to the user *********** SID (S-1-5-21-1873924993-3643908058-657741459-1122) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool."

Windows 7 Asking For Permission Or Saying Do Not Have Permission To Make Changes
A wire came loose in my laptop charger so I asked for a replacement, but the supplier was adamant that there was something wrong with the port in my laptop, not the charger (he was wrong), so they took it away to fix. Anyway, a member of their staff took my hard drive out to copy a couple of my files to a disk for me as I needed them asap and couldn't get my laptop charging. Apparently that's all they did.Today I got my laptop back and things are not right. I am the administrator and there are no other user accounts on my computer. I am recognised as the administrator when I go on Control PanelAll Control Panel ItemsUser Accounts. But now all of a sudden I can't access Music, Pictures, Videos or Documents from the start menu. It just does nothing and says nothing when I click on them. I went on 'Computer' and tried to access them from the 'Libraries' menu at the left side. It didn't let me and didn't come up with any error message. It also didn't let me see the properties of them or do any of the other right-click options. It was saying at the bottom that they were completely empty, so I just deleted them and thought I'd make new ones with the 'Create Library' option. But when I go on this it says "Unable to create the file 'New Library.library-ms' Access is denied". I tried to restore the four Libraries from my recycle bin. It came up with a message saying "You'll need to provide administrator permission to move this folder". I clicked on continue, then a box popped up saying "Destination Folder Access Denied. You need permission to perform this action". Permission off who?! It's MY computer!
When I located my files the long way (Computer - Windows (C:) - Users ... etc.), all my documents were read-only and had a padlock on their icons, so I changed that. It won't let me view my pictures (says I don't have the correct permissions to access the file location). I can copy and paste the pictures so that it will let me view the copies, but it says things like "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy this file" for everything I try to do. It gives me the option to continue, but it's annoying me because I have to keep giving permission for things that it should just let me do.

USB 'E' Requires Formatting?
I have a word doc on my USB that I don't wish to loose and now I'm getting a message to format! I've tried many approaches over the past week but with little success. The size of the file "c:UsersuserDocumentsSAVED FILES$ROOT00105Finding Form 1Part 3.docx" exceeds the 64KB limit for FAT 32Another company states that the Status of the file is 'Excellent', the size is '95 KB', the Date Created was '25/09/2012' and the Date Modified was '04/10/2012', Time '18:10'. That is the correct file although I'm not sure if 95KB is all the data?? It was roughly 20 pages of text
