    User Account Control asks permission to run some programs, why?


    I have UAC set one level below default, most programs will run without asking permission, however, Auslogics Defrag and Malwarebytes amongst some others, always need permission to run. How do I give these programs permanent permission to run?

    Programs that get deeper into the system are riskier to it so additional permissions are required, in some cases setting them to always run "As administrator" may help.

    I've also got my UAC set to one level below default, I would be interested to see which level most people put theirs.
