Many (not all) of my games on Steam always want to do their initial installation stuff like checking Directx installation etc every time I run them. This triggers UAC, so I have to type in my admin password every time I want to play. Up until now, this has just been mildly inconvenient, but I would like to put the computer in the living room and run Big Picture mode at some point in the nearish future, which means it will be more of an issue since I won't have a keyboard easily accessible. Anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it?
