Does this pop up for ALL programs? It should not. But there are a number of programs that require elevated privileges to run (on top on installing). I set my UAC to the step below what you have shown (one step above OFF) and it pops up occasionally. I know the programs causing the pop up.

So unless it is ALL programs, then it is probably normal. .... Thinkpads_User

Try setting to one step lower. Outlook (Office) 2007, 2010 should all be fine. I use them. Try setting UAC to the setting one step above OFF.

If no luck, try an Office Repair. For Office 2007 (Outlook) go into Trust Center -> Privacy options and click on (select) the option to "Download a file periodically ..." . After that, run Office Diagnostics.

If still no luck, uninstall Office entirely, restart, re-install, add service packs and patch. Make sure you select Run as Adminstrator to do the install.

Are you hitting on a link in a folder redirected environment?
i.e. outlook link is in the quick launch or on the desktop?
The link is seen as remote in this case and that is likely why you get prompted.

basemkhawaja64--If nothing else works, try right clicking on the file outlook.exe|Properties|Security tab and see what permissions you have.  Adjust if necessary.  
Or at the bottom of the right click outlook.exe|Properties|Compatibility tab is a box for "Run as Administrator".  If this is checked UNcheck it.

>>> problem still exist every time i open any program when i have the UAC set to level 2

You said (suggested) earlier that Outlook was the only program causing the issue.

Try the following:

1. Restore Windows to a prior point.
2. Run System File Checker:  SFC /SCANNOW at an admin prompt. Allow to complete and restart. If it says there were errors it did not correct, run again and restart.
3. See the following repair links:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-CA/windows7/products/features/startup-repair for a startup repair.

basemkhawaja64--Forgive me if this is a repeat of a suggestion already made.  Right click on outlook.exe and click "Run as adminstrator".  Do you still get the UAC screen?
It is not clear which of the suggestions made earlier you have tried.  If you need to change permissions for outlook (or any program) look here

You may have to live with the UAC popup.  It takes only one more click to get rid of it.
