I've sometimes wished Windows would just do that, instead of doing that SmartScreen nonsense, which never works anyway, or the frequent "This application might not have installed correctly." thing. Even though the application has apparently installed and does work properly, or having to mess around with the risky IMO "Run as Administrator." options.
