Windows 7: File ownership requirements seem to be different in Win 7

File ownership requirements seem to be different in Win 7

Over the weekend I upgrade to Windows 7 from Vista. Now there are several program that are acting differently, but all the differences seem to be related to file permissions.

-MSN Premium will only display my picture, favorites and mail if it is run as an Administrator.
-Windows Live Mail only runs if the Administator option is chosen. Other it crashes durimg the load with an error eF5F0204, Corrupt Calendar file. The file displays fine in MSN, Live Mail (with administrator option), and Hotmail.
-Yesterday I could not bring up Quicken until I added myself to a file and granted full ownership permissions.

My question is, what has changed between Vista and Win 7 as far as file permissions? Also, is there an easy way to fix the files.
