Well, that is a tad weird. Does EasyCleaner at all before/after/during running the program ask for UAC?
Also Easycleaner might be running with higher permission levels that were set on install? Not sure.

I would advise not doing this.. It will usually freeze up notepad if the .exe is anything large.
Also most .exe programs are also encrypted.. So it wouldn't even be readable.
Not to mention compiled.. so it would show a bunch of mumbo jumbo
