This has been happening with many games that I download off the internet. After the game downloads and installs, the exe file goes from being a program installer to a video game launcher. Windows fails to realize this, and every time I start the game the UAC pops up and I have to confirm that I want to change my computer to be changed, even though nothing is happening that will do so. While I can sometimes successfully reinstall to get it right, I am getting pretty tired of having to re-download 5 - 20 gig games repeatedly until windows figures out what is going on. The games download the actual game files during the installation, so I never know if it is going to work until I've spent a day downloading the game. I realize I could simply completely disable UAC, but I have a strong preference toward not doing so. How do I force windows to recognize that the file is not going to change my system?
