    A Long-used App Suddenly Gets "Do you want to allow" Notice


    I've been using Search Everything for years, now suddenly when I try to run it I get the message "Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your PC?"

    As a test I've just opened more than a dozen programs without problems.

    What should I do to be able to run Search Everything normally?

    A small chance: right mouse button, run as administrator. Maybe, preference is saved now.

    It just dawned on me that I always click "Yes" because, after all, I want to run the program, so there's no point in having the warning. If I change my mind I can just close the program. Duh!


    I've set User Account Control Settings to "Never notify"

    And guess what? All programs are opening faster. I use Open Office Writer a lot and for years the first time I run it each day it takes an eternity to open. Now it opens in about half the time. Go figure.

    Why didn't I do this years ago? Double duh-duh!
