I use Windows 7, and Google Chrome 7. Every time I start Google Chrome, a UAC Dialog box pops up with the question:

Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?

It hasn't always been like this, only with the most recent version of Google Chrome. How can I get rid of this UAC pop up, without inactivating UAC?

Try right hand click properties on the google icon, properties then compatibility. then uncheck run this program as administrator.

I know you did not want to turn off UAC, but turn off UAC run Google chrome as admin then turn on UAC.

"Uncheck run this program as administrator" solved this issue. Thanks. –  Jonas Oct 28 '10 at 13:33

One possibility is that you have installed the Flash add-on and gave it elevated access, for example if you let it have webcam access.

It wants to update itself (which happens silently).

I cannot locate an option for turning this off. Perhaps an uninstall + reinstall allows things to get straightened up.

Google Chrome properies > Compatibility > Look for a box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for" then on the drop down choose win7
