i thought i would try an sua following the discussion here and demoted my admin account to a standard account as per method 2 here:
Configuring Windows 7 for a Limited User Account

now every time i log into my standard account i get prompted for admin rights to let a couple of programs run eg:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung\Fast Flash Sleep Resume\FFSRConfigurer.exe

is there a way to whitelist the above to avoid getting the admin prompt?

I am using an outlook account if that is what SUA means:)
no.

SUA = Standard User Account , mean a secondary account which isn't set as admin (whicj is the first account you have when you install Windows) ; SUA must be created by the user.
Outlook Account is just a MS account that can be used on admin account or SUA.

no whitelisting possible, because this tools seems to be a system tool and was programmed as such it needs admin privileges.
Does this tool need to be ran at every boot? if no, just disable its startup entry.

Look at this:
NP700Z3A Easy Settings Requires Administrator Password
It seems that updating 'SW Update' or 'Samsung Easy Settings' software solved the problem.

Guys, I need some help here :/
I am not sure how to do this, do I simply just create a SUA and not use the ADMIN account or is there more to it? :O

This is my way of doing it:
1 create a second admin account
2 log into the new admin account
3 change the original account to "standard"
4 do regular computing tasks in the "standard" account

If the new admin account is a "microsoft" account, you can make a 4 digit pin for it, and that makes life easier.

Thanks, but please explain, why can I not just simply create a new account?

You can do that. But maybe you already have your user account set up just the way you like it, and you want to continue to use that way. The new admin account will only be for quick visits, to do something special, while you spend most of your time in the standard account.

That's how I switched.
New admin account doesn't have to be a MS account, even local accounts can use PIN.
