    Windows 7x64: ‘Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?’

    I have installed Windows 7 x64 on the computer of mine. I am getting a particular issue on the computer of mine. Whenever I am trying to use program like Defraggler, Malwarebytes or Revo Uninstaller. I am getting a message on the screen which is associated with the User Account Control. Already I have provided permission for the all the programs but still I am getting this particular prompt on the computer of mine. Let me know if you are having any useful instruction to fix the problem of mine. Thanks a lot in advance.

    Well you have posted that you are getting prompt which is associated with the User Account Control. So it would be a good thing if you can provide the entire content of the error message over here. Also can you tell me whether you have done any hardware changes on the computer of yours. Do you have install any antivirus program on the computer? Well you should answer the above mentioned thing as early as possible.

    When you have created a Standard user accounts on the computer then you need to get permission from the admin of the computer to make the changes which would affect the security of the computer. you would be able to use the all the program which are installed on the computer but you would not be able to delete or uninstall the program on the computer. some time some program might prompt for the Administrator password.

The Administrator of the computer is having an authority to modify the settings, installing the software and hardware of the computer. when you are supposed to set up the Windows which would be needed to create the user accounts and that particular account is an administrative account which would let you to install any program on the computer.
