Another thread got me thinking of my relatively minor problem. I
installed a home automation program using the XP compatibility mode.
The program runs fine. But, every time I launch it, Windows pops a
window that asks, "Do want to allow the following program from an
unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?" I click on 'yes',
and all is good. Is there a way to get ride of that announcement? BTW,
the program is Smarthome Manager.exe. The company doesn't support it
anymore, so there's no hope in getting a Windows7 version.
