    User Account Control (UAC) will notify you if an app tries to make changes that require administrator rights or makes changes to settings. If you are signed in with an administrator account you can click Yes or No when asked to permit the actions. When signed in with a standard user account you'll need to give the password for an administrator account before you can allow the action. More on UAC and its settings in this Tutorial:

    User Account Control (UAC) helps prevent malware from damaging a computer and helps organizations deploy a better-managed desktop environment. With UAC, apps and tasks always run in the security context of a non-administrator account, unless an administrator specifically authorizes administrator-level access to the system. UAC can block the automatic installation of unauthorized apps and prevent inadvertent changes to system settings.

    By default, UAC is set to notify you whenever apps try to make changes to your PC, but you can change how often UAC notifies you.
