What is the name of the Windows program or feature that pops up the first time a user attempts to run a program under Windows 7 and later and asks the user if it is OK to run the program? I'm drawing a blank.

Is there something similar for Windows XP?

It isn't a program, but a kernel feature called User Account Control (UAC), and it only exists in Windows Vista and newer.

No
