Windows 7: admin rights..

admin rights..

ok im getting sick of this. I've got dozens of folders on my PC that i cant delete because apparently i need admin privileges (even tho i am admin). Even if i switch user to the dedicated hidden admin account it still tells me i dont have the rights to delete stuff from MY OWN COMPUTER. It's utterly ridiculous.

Cant beleive i actually bought this joke of an OS. I feel completely vindicated for pirating previous versions of windows and certainly wont be wasting money on future versions if this is the path they are going down.

Do i really need to install XP to be able to have a clean and tidy computer?

I can make a new folder and instantly i dont have the rights to delete it, surely that cant be normal?

I really dont want to have to go back to XP but unless anyone knows a way to remove this stupid and completely unnecessary behaviour it seems like the only choice i have.

All i want is to have 1 account, my account, from which i can do anything i like, and yes, i do understand the risks involved in that.

or if not, and i do have to waste time switching to an admin account every time i want to delete/uninstall something, i at least want it to work from there which it currently does not

I have the UAC set to the bottom but still it tries to babysit my every move.

So sick of it. Linux is looking more attractive by the day.

Something is wrong with your computer and probably installation of Windows.

You only need to right click on the main drive lets say c: -> specifications -> security -> at the bottom of that click on advance -> change the permissions -> high light your name and once again click on the button to change your rights.

Thats all you have to do
