Have you altered the UAC settings since installing Windows are are they on the default settings?

I'm not having this issue but I do have to check (or clear, I can't remember) the check box in the downloaded program warning each time I upgrade.

To get around the UAC you can make a task to launch Xpadder on startup. Here's how I do this on Windows 7 64 to auto start any program that requires admin privileges:

Run Task Scheduler (Start->All Programs->System Tools->Task Scheduler)
In the left hand pane click on the Task Scheduler Library folder
From the menu select Action->Create Task

In the Create task window that pops up
General Tab:
fill in a name (Xpadder)
Check the "Run with highest privileges" box (this is the run as adim command)
Change the Configure for drop down list for Windows 7

Triggers tab:
click new
For the "Begin the task: drop down: At log on
Check the box next to "Enabled"

Actions tab:
Click New
From the Actions drop down select: Start a program
Click Browse and specify the location of Xpadder on your system (C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch for me)

Check the conditions and setting tabs for other options

while your at it, id personally recommend disabling UAC. Its junk, and frankly, un-needed. If you like windows asking you if your sure about what you just did five times, then keep it. But comming from a msce professional, its more hassle then good.
