Windows 7: Can fax as Administrator, cannot as user with admin status!

Can fax as Administrator, cannot as user with admin status!

When I try to set up an account under my user, which has admin status, I get an error message that it can not find the fax/modem, or see my admin. I've seen threads elsewhere about changing settings under Tools/Fax Settings, but when I click on that nothing happens.

On a lark I decided to try doing it as the Administrator, since I still made that available on the user select screen at start-up (and mind you, I only have this and the before mentioned user set up). I could do everything there!

I've tried looking at security and sharing settings, but found nothing obvious. Since all my files are set up under the user id, I'd like to fax from there without going through extra rigamarole.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
