Windows 7: provide admin permission???

provide admin permission???

Hi, Hope this is the right place to post this...
last night I logged on to the net via my nokia N85 and it asked me to set up a home group network, I chose the share everything 1 (with the bench chair) and all went well.
Till I noticed that now I get asked to "provide administrator permission" when doing such things as changing the name of a shortcut on the desktop or editing a system config file (for a game).
I also noticed now when I open up something like the games screenshot folder I can only see the pix if I press "compatibility files" never had to do it before last night...
It seems really dump cos I'm the only user/admin and it's not asking for a password, it just makes me provide permission every time...
can't find anything worthwhile on google, so any help would be nice THANX

PS. Im running Windows 7 pro 64bit and UAC is turned to "never notify", it seems related to program files only or the shortcuts to them.

Am I seeing duplicates or those topics getting so popular nowadays?

Ok anyway, if turning off didn't helped you
User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

And you think you are still being to much limited you may try this method:
Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable
Quote:
The built-in Administrator account is an account that has full access and permission on the computer. This will show you how to enable or disable the built-in Administrator account in Windows 7.
So try using build-in Administrator

Warning: From security point of view using Build-in Administrator considered high security risk.
But as I already told on the hundreds of the same threads, it's your system and your choice.

I have showed you how to do and warned that it is insecure and unsafe.
I myself is under Limited User Account not even thinking about using build-in Administrator for my regular stuff.

If you need more information, just ask.
