    Is there a way to disable the password requirement for admin actions like installing programs? It is getting irritating. Thanks.

    An admin account still requires a password to install downloads & such, just not a full authentication.

    You don't. The password requests are there for an important reason: security. If you're asked for your password, it's because an application wants to make fundamental changes to your system.
