Disable UAC on specific individual Software Program

UAC means User account Control, security feature which pops up a window saying “Do you want the following program to make changes to this computer”. It is annoying in many cases when you trust a program and UAC still asks for permission. It is possible to completely disable UAC but then its threat to security so, it’s better to disable UAC for specific trusted programs.

UAC Trust Shortcut is a small program shared by Technospot where you can specify trusted program and it creates a shortcut for that program on Desktop. Now, access the program from same shortcut and it will no more ask you for permission. Browse for the main program EXE file and click “Add now”.

The problem I have is that the UAC is blocking my auto-run backup software – so a shortcut isn’t going to help.
THe program is Memeo backup for My Book mirror edition. It backs up automatically when the system is idle – or should. The problem is when I come back to my computer, there is the UAC popup asking if the program can run. Very annoying and I don’t know how to work around it.

Seems to do with the location the file is running from – perhaps, can you redefine what locations the computer thinks are internet based?
