Windows 7 (64 bit) - Everytime I start up my brokerage program I get a message telling me...

Every time I start up my brokerage program (charles schwab has a downloadable desktop program) I get a message saying that the program may be making changes to system files or some such message.   I have to always press YES to continue.

What do I do so that I can start up the program and never have to asknowledge this message again? I am the owner of the machine and the only account on it.

But I should mention that my solution does work, it just changes the setting globally. If you're the only one who uses your computer and you know you won't run viruses, you can disable the notifications.

This is good because you will still get notified about running programs you downloaded from the internet, but these CAN be disabled on a per-program basis.

Cheers

It sounds like it's the UAC (User Account Control) message about running it as administrator. Does the rest of the screen darken?

Right click on the icon, select properties, then under the Compatibility tab, see if "Run this program as an administrator" is checked. Try unchecking it and running the program.

If it's StreetSmart Pro, try the instructions here for getting it to run:

If it's StreeSmart Edge, the program should run in Windows 7 fine without any compatibility options checked.

Well, there is a way to run a program through a task scheduler entry where it is started with the highest privileges. This prevents the UAC prompt you are getting every time. The procedure is described here.

I wouldn't think that an app would need to make alot of changes at each launch....

Sure that it isn't some sort of update that's in a loop that UAC is barking at?
