SourceTree only starts when run as adminstrator Win 10

I was having trouble with SourceTree not starting on Windows 10. I completely uninstalled SourceTree and reinstalled the latest version. However, it will not start unless I right click and run as administrator. Is theer any way around this? It never used to requrie admin priviledges to start.
