After trying several quite drastic methods for preventing the "User Account Control" uac window ["Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer" - yes/no] from popping up in Windows7 (without actually uninstalling the uac - which I would like to keep for the security benefits) every time gimp runs I discovered:
In my case, I just uninstalled Gimp 2.6 (then in "C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0")
and then reinstalled it in
and the problem vanished !
Hope others find this helpful.
