    I believe it has to do with running the application "as administrator".
    What program is it?

    It means that the program requires UAC comfirmation or admin rights.

    It is a software update program for my laptop. I have a Toshiba laptop. Is
    there a way to disable this,or not?

    What do you mean nothing happened? If you select "Run As Administrator" and
    the shortcut points to an executable then the program should run. If it
    doesn't run then it may be corrupt.
