icacls to reset everything(sec/owner/premision) to admin.

icacls C:\ /grant administrators:F /T /C

So would this set folders permissions and junk so the wandering folders permissions,ect get fixed.

Is there anyway you can just turn off security/permissions,ect so you will not get owner/permissions issues anymore?

Yes I did turned off UAC since it dose not let me load programs at start up in admin mode.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

The easiest way is to just grant "everyone" full control over the whole hard disk, so bye bye security and anyone/anything will never get an "access denied" error.
However, I think It's a VERY bad idea. That does the trick, but I would suggest AGAINST using it.

There is also a trick that lets you run elevated programs at startup, even with UAC enabled. First you can use this tutorial to create a shortcut to the program: Elevated Program Shortcut - Create for Standard User
Then place that shortcut under the startup folder of start menu.

Win7 64 Home(HP Icore5 HP touchsmart) and Ultimate 64 desktop.

Tried ACT did run as invoker, runasadmin and elevated , no matter the combo my programs would not start after windose boots up. Thus why I am playing in no mans land.

I do not really need to let everybody as admins I just need admin thats always admin that is never forgotten that its admin, Hell I have no other users and this has been an on and off problem since Vister 0_o


Since vista I can not recall when I made Utorrent start up at boot. Now on my Laptop thats normal Windows 7 home works fine..... teh fck? 0-o I don't like messing with the lappy much for some strange reason ><

Strange thing is its not set on admin and UAC is default.

Uhg time to dance the format,reinstall somba LOL oh well, got any ideas how I can trick it into behaving on Win7U 64?
