How to gain auto win7 admin privleges?

I have home premium with myself as the only user. Whenever I try to delete or move certain files, a message pops up saying I need administrative purposes to perform this task. I then have the option to continue and it lets me do the task. How can I eliminate this unnecessary step?

You mean UAC?

It can be disabled by following this tutorial.

But, be warned because it's a security feature!

Oh ok, that's what they mean by the UAC hoopla then. I had skipped Vista and went straight from XP to Windows 7. And it was worse in Vista?

A lot worse!

It means "User Account Control" and it manages the programs that have launched that require permissions to write files or data in your registry...etc...

Now when a program is launched that requires those privilages a small winow appears and notifies you abt it...

But an unwanted program(malware) can also do that but you wont let it by denying it.

The longer, more boring version is here.
