    The trick is to actually run the program (such as outlook) as an admin process by right clicking and choosing the Run as Adminsitrator option. Depending on your UAC settings you may have to give confirmation.

    Disabling UAC completely is another option, but not one that I would advocate (I'd actually normally say turn it up!) since it reduces the security for your computer.
