When I open Microsoft Outlook 2007, I now get a pop up which seems to activate administrator rights, which I don't want. How do I get rid of the pop up?

The pop up states:
Title: User Account Control
Body of message: Do you want the following program to make changes to this computer - Microsoft Office Outlet.
Choices: yes/no

Hi:
Try this:
Locate the program Outlook .exe on your computer.

For Outlook 2007, the file will be located at C:\Program files\Microsoft Office\Office 12\outlook.exe
If you are using a 64 bit OS, look in Program files(X86)

 Right click on Outlook.exe and click Properties.
 Click on the compatibility tab.
 Uncheck the option "Run this program as administrator" and click Apply and ok.
