For example, when upgrading Adobe Flash Player on my iMac, I had to give permission to download the Flash Player update, then I had to give permission to install the update on my iMac. Anything that changes the configuration of the computer requires multiple approvals. Apple must have hired some ex-Microsoft software deisgners who dug back into their archives to think this one up. I am always making changes and this is a nuisance. I might have to go back to Lion if I can't find how to work-around this. Thanks in advance for your help.

"Go back to Lion" ... your post says you are on 10.6, which is Snow Leopard. Are you in fact on Mountain Lion? 'Cos I am still on Snow Leopard, and so cannot experience what you report.
Is it only the Flash Player that requires multiple permissions?
Are you using an admin account?

I selected "Anywhere" just after I upgraded to OS 10.8 an this event still occurs. It occurs on all types of changes I make to the computer, not just Flash Player, which I used as an example. Has anyone else experienced this?

I am unaware of any change in behaviour in Mountain Lion. It has worked the same way for as long as I can remember.
Can you give a specific example where you feel you have to authenticate too much? Something that we can reproduce to compare?
