'User Account Control' appears whenever I start Outlook 2010

Whenever I start Outlook 2010 the 'User Account Control' screen appears and asks me if I want the program to make changes to my system. The program is not running in any compatibility mode.

It has been installed for about a week and worked for the first 3-4 days. The day before this issue started I was getting a script error when I started the program.

I used the repair function on the install DVD but nothing has changed.

Try running outlook application as an administrator and check if it helps.

Browse to the following location

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14.

If it is a 64 bit operating system the location would be

C:\Program Files x(86)\Microsoft Office\Office14

Look for the file OUTLOOK.EXE, right click > Properties - Compatibility - enabled the box which reads 'Run this program as an administrator'
