Default UAC question

Is there a way to disable the User Account Control warning screen for only one program? I know how to disable it completely but that's not what I want. There is one program I trust that I want to run as an administrator every time (can do this in properties) but I don't want the warning screen every single time.

Post A well sought after feature...

You are not the only one that is looking for this type of behavior. I found this link though that has paragraph at the end that may be the answer to your problem:
...there is a Local Security Policy option to change the behavior of the elevation prompt for Administrators to "elevate without prompting". With this option selected, anything that requests elevation gets elevated without prompting the user. (The default setting is "prompt for consent"; the third option is "prompt for credentials". Note that "elevate without prompting" is available only for members of the Administrators group. The options for standard users are "prompt for credentials" and "automatically deny elevation requests".) While "elevate without prompting" may be useful in well-constrained, secure environments for automated testing and possibly for initial system setup, having this option selected otherwise is very risky and strongly discouraged. (Note also that Vista's Home SKUs do not include the policy editor.)
hope that helps.

I've become so annoyed with this feature that I've disabled it completely.
