  • Are you using the Windows 8 developer preview? If I remember correctly, they switched from the Yes/No dialog to always showing the password dialog because there were too many people just clicking yes to shut it up. But from what you have written, this isn't a developer question. This forum is for people who are writing applications for Windows and want to know how to deal with programming security features.

    I would suggest you find one of the Windows forums and ask there, or contact Microsoft product support.
