Always ask permission to copy files to C: drive and can't download
Hi all. I'm having a strange problem in Windows 7. The problem is that basically, anytime I want to copy a file to the C: (OS partition), Windows asks me if I want to continue copying a file there (I am an administrator so I don't know why it should). Also, if I want to download a file to the C: partition, it won't allow me and it'll tell me I have to save it in my username folder, not in the C: root. According to the persmissions, administrators have full control but I'm still asked if I want to copy files. So can anyone help on this? I've tried assigning users to have full control but I get a series of messages like "This file is currently in use, cannot set permission" and access denied for "Program files, Program Files (x86), Windows and C:\".

If you really want to be logged in as administrator see this tutorial:
Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable=User%20Accounts
by the way, I don't use a download folder under my user account. I use a download folder directly under C:\. But I guess since it was not created by the system, but by me, it doesn't hassle me about it.
Some things I like to have the same across all flavors of Windows.
