If you are having a problem with User Account Control (UAC) in Windows Vista or later (security pop-up) on installing or running Firestorm, follow the below steps.

  • Try to run as an Administrator by right clicking the Firestorm install application, and then click “Run as administrator”. This usually works.
  • If you still are experiencing a problem disable UAC (User Account Control).

Steps copied from Microsoft support page.

  • Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking User Accounts and Family Safety (or clicking User Accounts, if you are connected to a network domain), and then clicking User Accounts.
  • Click Turn User Account Control on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  • Select the Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer check box to turn on UAC, or clear the check box to turn off UAC, and then click OK.
