If you recently started running in Admin. mode, that would do it. You can always disable UAC, but I recommend not to.

Corday, Thankyou. I have not been running in Admin. mode. I am lothe to disable UAC. Any other advice. Would uninstalling and then reinstalling work?

The qw.exe is the correct launcher for Quicken. I see no reason to worry. It is a 32 bit program on a 64 bit platform but that's not an issue. The don't ask for this program option (UAC) seems to only work sometimes. Keep your security up to date and run scans as needed.
