How NOT to run automatically in Admin mode?

I am attempting to run a program named Fences 3.0 by Stardock Software. It is giving me multiple requests after install to do various things to my hard drive. I had simply purchased the upgrade and installed it the most intuitive way. I requested Stardock's assistance and they replied: "Do not set Fences.exe to run as Admin and those message will go away."  I did not see any option during installation to  do or not to do anything similar to what they are asking me to do. I have no idea how to accomplish their suggestion.  I already uninstalled the software then ran their batch routine to eradicate any traces of their software then reinstall. I am getting the  same popups. How to I go about following through with what they are asking me to  do here?

If you really need to disable questions about run software you can disable UAC in Control Panel.
Microsoft did implemented this to Windows 7 and up to increase security and prevent programs to run in background without user permission but You can decide about how hard this security is.

I prefer not to alter the default security settings for my Windows 10. I have always left it at default. This is also the first occasion that this software has repeatedly asked for access to my hard drive after installation. The software company evidently thinks that there is some way that I am purposely requesting it be run in admin mode. I am not doing that. However if it already is doing that on its own, how do I ask Fences 3 do just load normally  without me taking any action? This is the way the software has been running for several years without any problem. I simply want to use the software after normal installation and not have to cope with the Fences 3 popups. Thanks for your input! Let us delve further please.....

If publisher is not register in Microsoft and software is not digitally signed, then this is only way.

Are you telling me that the publisher is giving me an easy answer that they know will be impossible to implement? They are saying "DO not run in Admin mode. i cannot believe that they leave themselves open to my type of problem with each and every installation of this software. They would be out of business in short order if every purchaser faced this problem. It is my feeling that "something" is odd or ill configured on this laptop causing me to see these popups. I have used their software for 6 years without this difficulty. 2+2 does not seem to be equaling 4 today.  It is my gut feeling that there is an easier answer that is eluding the experts and not  being explained fully by the software manufacturers. This software is also on my desktop computer and runs just fine with zero message popups.

Right click on Fences.exe, select Properties, Shortcut tab, Advanced and make sure Run as Admin is not checked.
