    When I try to repair ESS I get this message.

    Funny, one could think that since v4 is UAC compatible there would be an option to elevate privileges when needed ...

    This has nothing to do with UAC and administrator privileges. The repair feature doesn't work in v4 yet.

    Well since that issue is not in the known issues (http://www.eset.eu/produkts/eset-smart-security-4-beta-known-issues) it was safe to assume that some kind of UAC prompt could have been in place to alert user about the elevated privileges needed to perform the repair, specially when such prompt could have provided the means to finish the repair (that now I know does not work yet)
    After all, if you read the screenshot that is exactly what you would expet, since the advert says "The installer has insuficient privilleges to modify this file" ergo, an UAC prompt giving the user the option was not a bad assumption.
