This problem still persists for me and Im surprised others havent mentioned it until now.
Im running two logins - my standard admin login created when Windows 7 first installs and a user login in my name with lower powers so that viruses and the like dont get admin powers straight off the bat.
I tried doing what folks suggested above, to the point of uninstalling macrium and then reinstalling it when logged in as my normal user. Sadly none worked.
When I installed as the normal user, it didnt even appear in my normal users uninstall programmes list....it only appeared if i logged in as admin and looked there.
It would seem macrium is totally focused on being logged in as admin when running. If, through my normal user account, i fire up macrium with a right click run as admin, that seems to work for THAT session. However if i reboot i have to remember to do it again.
As such im finaing that half of my scheduled backups fail because ive forgotten to launch macrium from my normal user account as admin.
Im now finding it a lot easier to simply remember to log off and log back on as admin before putting the pc to sleep at night.
However, none of these are 'elegant' solutions. For those of you doing scheduled backups (daily for example) - how are you overcoming this?
I again point to the macrium support thread where macrium say that it needs admin privelages: Macrium Support Forum - scheduled image in W7 as non-admin
