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?

UAC Requesting Permission To Run Programs That Don't Need Permission?
I have 2 programs on two seperate computers where UAC comes up and asks me if I wish to run the programs. These programs do not require administrator rights (Truecrypt and iSpy) and the check beside "Run program as administrator" is not checked in either the shortcut or the actual executable file.

UAC Permission For Windows 7 Upgrades
Since a re-install of Win 7, everytime I boot I get a UAC pop up asking if I want to allow Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to make changes to my system. Even though I select NO it keeps coming up at each boot. Do I really need to have this program installed and/or how do I stop that from coming up each time?

Removing UAC Icon From Program Shortcuts
On my desktop I have a few shortcuts that have the UAC Shield on them. I assume this means that you must have administrative privileges to run it (correct me if I'm wrong). If it's important for any reason, I am the administrator. How can I get rid of that pesky icon?

Avoid UAC Prompt For Trusted Program That Launches At Startup
I have an app that is supposed to run at startup. It has an option in it to "Start with Windows", but Windows 7's UAC insists on prompting me every time. I tried making a new task in Task manager to run it at startup, and using "Run with hightest Priveleges", but it doesn't work. The app just doesn't start at all. I am using an admin account, and I've disabled the "Start with Windows" setting in the app itself.

Program Won't Run Correctly Unless UAC Is Disabled?
I have a program (written by a community member for this game) that hooks into the game itself, and grabs the onscreen text. Now, the program itself works, but only when UAC is disabled. I can run it as administrator, and approve the changes it makes to the computer, however it still won't work unless the UAC is disabled.Do any of you guys know what the problem is? When UAC is off, the program does not need administrator priviledges. When the UAC's on, when the program starts up it the UAC makes its appearance and asks if you'd like to allow this program to make changes, and i always click "yes." So I don't understand why, even though i allow it to make changes, it still can't do those changes.My friend, the one who showed me it, runs XP and has no problem with it. if you want the link for it, if you need it, i can get you it. It's pretty simple really, just the program and a .DLL file that goes with it.

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. fscapture.exe
e.g. Everything (desktop search)
e.g. Dreamweaver MX2004
e.g. Disk Defrag (Auslogistics)
e.g. Malwarebyte's Ant-Malware
e.g. Hitman Pro

The Application-specific Permission Settings Do Not Grant Local Activation Permission

General info tab says:
"The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID

Pin A Speech Recognition Shortcut To The Taskbar Of A Windows 7 System So That The Program Starts When Click It?
I`m trying to pin a speech recognition shortcut to the taskbar of a Windows 7 system so that the program starts when I click it.At the moment, I can only get as far as creating a shortcut that opens with the `Configure your Speech Recognition` window and I can`t seem to work out where the actual program starts from. I thought if I could find the exe file, I could create a shortcut from there and guessed it`d be in C/Windows/system32 but unless it`s camouflaged, it doesn`t seem to be there.
