Windows 7: Administrator... etc

Administrator... etc

Some preliminary info:
Win7 Ultimate x64
User Accounts: myname; Default; Mcx1-MYPCNAME; Public
Ultra-Hidden Accounts: All Users, Default User

My Problem:
I'm sick of having to "give Administrator permission" in Win7. I don't have any other account but my main one "myname" - the rest are just there to begin with.

Specific programs have to be continuously "run as an administrator" such as games, and PS CS5 64bit. I can't save certain files to certain locations without doing running as an administrator - but since I have only one account and it's an admin account...

Anyway - How do I convince my computer that I want to be the sole administrator, and run everything as an administrator, without the stinking message "Do you want suchansuch to make changes...blah blah..."

I'm wishing I had kept XP...

Do I never want it to notify?

that's not the issue so much - the issue is my computer is treating me (Nice personification, right?) like my not an administrator...

Idk how else to describe it.

I understand your frustration.

While not connected to the internet, then you can slide the UAC slider all the way to the bottom and get rid of those annoying prompts.

While connected to the internet I recommend one position from the very top on the slider.

WIN | type UAC | ENTER
and you will see the slider I reference.

WIN is the key with the wavy flag.

Although some will say how unnecessary and harmful they can be, I 100% recommend using the CCleaner registry cleaner if run "wide open" (slider all the way to bottom). Use also use the Auslogic Registry Cleaner. Those registry cleaners have spotted spyware traces in my registry and even caused me to stop running wide open 100% of the time.

With the slider up to near top, then I have no spyware traces. If I drop it down then I get them.

I'm constantly connected to the internet - so I guess I'll just have to deal.

Where is the slider??

And, why cannot a person right click the C drive and set properties to " shut the F up, and rename the file"

that would be a nice setting

Hello Forloc, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can enable the built-in Administrator account and log on to it to have full control.

Hope this helps,
