TWO problems; allowing a limited user access to an admin folder

1. So when I try to that, it goes FILE BY FILE but some cause a window to show up which reads: access denied!!
And I am admin, makes no sense!

2. When I am on a limited user and I try to access an admin folder or directory, or run application as admin I am asked to enter the admin's password. for folders I just click on the folder and it opens a window that asks for the admin's password, for apps I click run as admin. The problem is that after I enter the password and proceed, It hangs, explorer hangs i guess.

If you are trying to editing a file that is located in the programs folder, than you need to save the file to the desktop and drag it over into the folder and it will override that file making it the correct folder.

Take a look at your security settings: ..Windows 7 | Security Features.. and see what they are set at. Also, download an different Internet Browser and see what happens.
