I write small utility programs. Once I moved to Windows 7, I noticed that my MP3PATCH, WAVPATCH, and EXEPATCH programs now cause the UAC to display the "Do you want the following program..." message. I can rename the executable to something else, and it runs fine. Can the UAC really get triggered just by a certain word in the executable's name? Seems a bit much. Any workaround (instead of disabling the UAC)? What other keywords will cause the UAC to trigger?
Want to try it yourself? Create a small app that just displays "Hello World". Test it. Rename it to HelloPatch.exe and it will cause the UAC to display its prompt.
