Live 9.7.4 is asking me for my computer password every time I load a set or do anything.

I can't figure out why all of a sudden, Live asks me to enter my password every time I start now. I get this "Ableton Live Suite wants to make changes". What could be going on. Just started doing this recently. The only thing I did was update to OSX High Sierra but not sure it started at that exact time.

Thanks for any fixes or clues,

    This is happening to me to too ever since I upgraded to High Sierra. It seems it only happens when I have a M4L device in a set and I reopen that project. It doesn't happen with new projects but happens every time on other projects.

    I have the same. I filled the password and after I load the project again it will ask for it again.

    Same here.. Every time I open Live is asks for the password.  Is this the new standard? Will it be fixed... Kind of annoying...

    Maybe you need to enter admin password once, so that Live can set-up some background stuff, like authorization or automatic update. Not a Mac user, so blind guessing here, but on Windows, it's like that.
