How to tame UAC

#1
I've got Windows 7 Pro.
This morning I installed Malware Bytes Antimalware.
It opens when I boot the system but UAC apparently is stopping it from running in realtime.
I have to double click the tray icon then allow it in UAC to get it to run realtime.
How can I set UAC to allow this at startup?
I've already checked and the program is set to start automatically in the startup manager.
Thanks.

Go into user accounts and turn off UAC if you don't need it.

Hi, Joe.
Yes I could turn off UAC but I like having it as a part of my security.
Any other way of doing this?
Thanks.

Open windows explorer and navigate to the Malwarebytes Antimalwarefolder, in Program files. Select the .exe file. Right click it and click the "properties". . Select the "compatibility" tab. Bottom right is a box "Run the program as Administrator". Tick that and close the windows. See if that works.

RAK,
Thanks for your help..
I'm going to be reinstalling in a few days. Going to 64 bit.
After I get it set up I'll do as you suggested.
