Steam/UAC (Vista) issue

After a recent trojan infection on my PC I decided to reactivate UAC. But it keeps popping up whenever Steam launches (at startup) and that’s annoying. Is there any way to get UAC to recognize that Steam is “ok”? Because Googling around the most common solution seems to be to deactivate UAC.

My PC is set up for a single user with full control.

Might be something wrong with the Steam install if you couldn’t find someone with similar problems. I only see UAC during installation which is no major concern. Also avoid installing anything into the standard folders if you can, use X:\Steam or X:\Games\Steam or similar to avoid problems with UAC if you need to make manual modifications later.

UAC doesn’t like to be reactivated. Your best bet is to reinstall Steam after reactivating UAC.
