Windows 7: Access Rights

Access Rights

I didn't know whether to post this under general or Security, I guess it is more of a security Issue.

Ok, So over a week of using windows 7 i have noticed alot of programs etc ask for access right etc in order to carry out commands, I know of a solution to each program just by right clicking and opening it as an administrator, but, I am the only user set up and i should already be an admin i would of thought, How can i go about this to making everything i run, run with admin rights or full access rights.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks alot for that!, Is good, but may i ask, How do i transfer my profile over to the admin user? and will it be called administrator? I was hoping to just be able to change the account i have if that was possible, not add another user... Heh

If anyone could advise me on this it would be cool!

(edit - Just to reassure, i have checked my own user account and it is set up as an admin account, so i dunno if there is any difference to the admin account and mine....)


Thanks

Did you follow through? Built-in Administrator Account - Change Name

I don't use the "hidden built-in Administrator account" and I have UAC turned on for my 'specific admin' account.

Well, Kinda, I was having problems with folder/file access rights in applications more than anything, For instance, i was getting an error from Itunes saying,

“The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. You do not have the access privileges for this operation.”

But, i think i managed to fix this by changing my access rights under my username to "full access" to The whole drive that contains my music and itunes files.
I wonder if i will have to do this to my C drive too?

You can give yourself "privileges" with all access rights

Sorry, I do not understand.
What i did was right click my M drive, select properties and click the securities tab, from there i clicked "edit" for where the edit permissions are and selected full control as allow.

Is that what you were meaning?
