Have you checked what UAC permissions you have set? What about folder permissions? There are a number of resources for XBMC in the App Data folder (which is hidden by default) which might have some strange permissions being set.

the thing is i havent changed any settings at all. i only noticed it when i went to start xbmc and the remote didnt work, so starting it with the desktop icon now brings up the UAC prompt every time....i have to turn UAC completely off to stop it from doing this.... very weird
