Always install with elevated privileges

By default Windows will ask you if it’s need to install an application with elevated permissions (administrative rights). However if you are planning to install many applications that require these permissions then this tweak will surely help you. It changes the Windows settings in such a way that you will not be prompted for UAC confirmation mid-installation when an application needs to be installed. This tweak does not remove the need to confirm running the installation as Admin.
