Windows 7: Full Admin Accounts

Full Admin Accounts

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to set up a user to be an administrator in Windows 7 Ultimate...

1) I created the user as an Administrative account
2) I have turned UAC off in Conrol Panel -> Users Accounts -> Change User Account Control Settings by setting it to "Never Notify"
3) I have set UAC Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode to Elevate without prompting
4) I have set the user to the administrators group in "control userpassword2"
5) I have verified that he is a member of the Administrators group

... and yet, I am still prompted for administrative approval when I try to move/edit files in system areas. For example, if I want to move a start menu folder under "c:\programdata\microsoft\windows\start menu"

When I look at the file/folder permissions, the administrators group has "full control", but I keep getting prompted.

I DO NOT want to use the built-in Administrator account. I want to create a personal administrative account with the same level of access as the built-in account. Everything I've been able to find about this so far tells me to do the steps outlined above, but they don't seem to work for me. No matter what I do, UAC is getting in the way.

If anyone knows how I can fix this, please let me know.

Thanks to you all in advance,
-Michael

Hello Michael,

When it prompts you, does it require you to type in a password, or do you just have to click yes?

Thank you,

It just asks me to click OK or Continue.

Hello Msmcknight,

I'm not sure there is a way to disable that.

I think it's there for safety reasons, to prevent potential bad programs getting onto your computer.

Thank you,
