Windows 7: How to change to Administrator with Elevated Rights for ALL?

How to change to Administrator with Elevated Rights for ALL?

I have a new Win7x64 Pro that I am the sole Administrator for with no other users.
I recently discovered that I cannot do some things like Copy/Paste various files/folders or even simple things like changing the icon for shortcuts that I just created.

I am used to unrestricted access to my previous XP-Pro comp and frustrated by the complexity of Win7 Permissions.

I have read about a dozen different tutorials on how to accomplish Elevated Rights and they all seem to differ wildly depending on what is desired and most are very involved.

I don't want temporary or narrow defined rights. I want what I had in XP.

How do I forever get rid of this @#$* headache once and for all and never ever again see or hear anything about Permissions???

PS: My wife will soon be getting her own Win7 comp and I'll want to set hers up identical to mine.

What I have done is to take ownership of Windows and all folders by following this Tutorial:

Take Ownership Shortcut

I also have the UAC turned down to it's lowest level-no notifications. I have also taken ownership of the registry by using this program This can be found at WinAero: Winaero - Free small and useful software for Windows. I hope that this helps you.

Gary,

Thanks for the link. It sure has a lot of satisfied customers.
I don't pretend to understand it 100% but will give it a try.
Which option of those given to you think is the best way to go?
