    No, it's a security measure that cannot be disabled, and for good reason. It's the biggest thing currently preventing the malware currently distributed as a trojan from being a virus or worm (not the only thing, but one of the biggest hurdles).

    Not just Macs, but ALL popular operating systems employ this sort of User Access Control. You will find the same behavior on Windows, and even most Linux systems.
