I believe it has to do with running the application "as administrator".

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?

the shortcut points to an executable then the program should run. If it
doesn't run then it may be corrupt.
