    Once you click yes or no in the prompt for a program, do you stop seeing it for that program?

    Did you test to see how the programs would run without using compatibility mode on them?

    Naturally I know some stuff is gonna have to run in that mode until 8.1's been out for a while, but can I disable this from popping up somehow?

    Thanks in advance.
    That is a TuneUp Utilities Application.. I believe you have 2013 version of it. The reason why it keeps popping-up because that app is not fully compatible with Windows 8.1. You need to update to TuneUp Utilities 2014 for that or you can just turn-off the automatic maintenance of that app at the Settings. Hope it helps.

    I updated mine to 2014.
