Windows 7: Install with different account

14 Jul 2009   #1

Windows 7
Install with different account


I installed Windows 7 with a secondary admin account I have. When I login with my regular user account (which I've added to the local admin group) I don't seem to have full admin rights on the machine.

I've noticed in several areas where I need to make some changes (Internet Explorer, adding OneNote COM addin to Outlook) I am unable to.

Do I need to do anything else to raise the account rights for my regular user account?
