    Running Win 7 Ultimate.

    My motherboard has a software utility that monitors the computer. It starts
    with Windows but everyday I have to grant it UAC permission to run. Is there
    I means to let me give this utility permenant permission to load without UAC
    intercepting it everytime the computer starts?

    Have you tried right-clicking the setup file and selecting 'Run as administrator'?
    There maybe some work-round information on the motherboard's website.
    You could try uninstalling/re-installing the utility but this time
    install to C:/Users instead of C:/Program Files (if you are given the
    option during install).
    The next thing to try is to schedule a task, running under the System
    account, to run the utility at Windows start-up.
    If none of the above work then it's either live with it, turn off UAC or
    don't bother running the utility.

    Thanks guys...I'll look into the suggestions.

    Wouldn't you think an organisation like Microsoft would have thought about
    this kind of problem - a legacy from Vista - and made it so that you could
    give some programs / processes permission to run with a simple right click
    or similar - crazy

    If the program were written differently (in my opinion properly) this
    wouldn't be an issue. A hardware monitor should run as a service process
    which would get around the UAC issue and the only portion that needs to run
    as a user is the desktop util that communicates messages back and forth
    between the service process and the user. That's how a software
    distribution utility I wrote works.
