Windows 7: How do I disable Admin permission notice for a Windows 7 account

How do I disable Admin permission notice for a Windows 7 account

Hi all,
Just got my new computer and like my old one it has been set up with Windows 7 on, yet with this one whenever I try to move a file or delete something it says admin permission needed and I have to click on continue and it lets me do it. But I have to do this every time.
How do I turn this off? As far as I knew I was an admin as I have the only account and I can seem to do things that need admin permission but I may have not.

Thanks for your time.

You have NO admin right by default, but you can get it temporay. That's why the prompt appears.

But in what folder do you delete a file and it gives the admin popup?
"my documents", "my pictures" .... all your personal folders work fine?

Thanks for the quick reply,
My pictures and my documents work fine, that is there is no admin prompt there. Just appears to be custom folders.

Update
Interestingly I can not save files to custom folders.

C:\ programfiles\ football. Hmm penny dropping, it might be because its in program files, though I didn't have this problem with my old windows 7 PC.

Update

Yes that appears to be it, no need for admin permission when its just in the C: irritating as I didn't have the problem with my old PC but I guess I can just move the folders to C:

Normal users cannot write/delete in C:\windows and C:\program files and c:\program files(x86)
Only allowed if they become admin

Why are you trying to write in C:\program files\football ? It's a folder specific for the program itself! Only dll, exe and maybe an install logfile. Maybe some add-ons. The stuff is read/execute only

What the hack are you trying to copy or delete?

Why? It's not a usual folder for that kind of stuff. Why not move the C:/programfiles/football folder to "my documents"? Then you have no problems at all
