I have a win 7 ultimate x64 box. I used to run XP. I loaded fresh on new drives, and installed the OS, some office and utils on drive C: as normal. I have 2 more drives, D: and E:, that I have installed about a terabyte of games/simulators on. I have installed these on both drives under \program files folder. During install and setup of the OS, I turned off UAC because it was taking way to long to answer all the prompts to make sure this is what I wanted to do. So after done installing everything a week later, I flip UAC back on. Now I can't run anything without UAC kicking in and it does mess up some of my programs.
Question is. Should I just turn UAC off and leave it or do a reinstall, and put all my games on drive D and E in a folder called \Games or something like that to prevent UAC from wearing me out.
Other possibilities I was thinking of is renaming D:\program files to d:\games and do the same on drive E:, then find\replace anything in the registry from D:\program files to D:\games, do the same for E:. Would that work or would I wind up hosing my install?
