I'm using Windows 7 64-bit. I am the only user of the computer, although I do have a password-protected backup account. I have not disabled UAC, nor do I wish to. I also use Steam (unfortunately).
The first time I run any newly-installed Steam game, I'm asked whether I wish to give the Steam BuildBot permission to modify my computer. The answer is always 'yes.'
I am growing really tired of going through this every single time. Surely, with Win7's "robust" permission system, there must be a way to permanently grant a given program elevated permissions such that no user is ever required to answer UAC-type questions when using that program, without disabling UAC or modifying the entire system.
Any help is appreciated.
Oliver observes that I've misunderstood the facts of the situation.
So now, I'd like to know whether it's possible to add a permanent exception for programs signed by the Steam BuildBot, or -- more generally -- to make signature-based exceptions on a permanent basis without lowering other security settings on a system-wide basis.
