Many thanks, Ztrucker. I looked at the "enabler" site and have downloaded the program. My immediate problem is solved, but I will plan to work with that program on the next Win 7 glitch I run into, if it fits into that area.
I'm still uncomfortable with what I perceive of as Windows 7 "mothering" me, not letting me delete files because "you don't have privileges to do this" etc even though I am logged to a profile with admin privileges. (Sorry that's off topic .. just complaining.
But Win 7 (and its successors) are obviously here to stay, so I better keep up.
