  1. How to find details behind "Do you want to allow the following ..."


    I purposefully have UAC set so that I sometimes get the "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to your PC?" popup. Is there any way to tell what requested change is prompting this popup? My response would depend on what's being changed.

    I know I can get rid of the popup altogether, but that is absolutely not what I want to do. I want to know when a new program is trying to change things. If it is trying to change the directory, for example, I want to know what it wants to change. If it wants to save its own settings in the directory that's ok. If it wants to change other settings, that may not be ok.

    :)
