Windows 7: WLM 2009 w/n open attachments

WLM 2009 w/n open attachments

Iíve looked everywhere for an answer with no luck. I noticed today I can no longer open attachments directly from WLM 2009. I am also not able to drag the attachment to my desktop to open them. I have to save each attachment in order to view them. I do have DO NOT SAVE OR OPEN ATTACHMENTS un-checked in WLM.
The only way for me to open attachments directly from WLM is to right-click and run WLM as an Administrator. Then it works as it should. I only have on account on my Windows 7 (32) and itís set up as administrator. Can someone help me out?
Thank
Dan

One of two problems. either ownership, or permissions
I would take opwership of the entire drive (a bit of overkill) instructions here Take Ownership Shortcut
Then y ou should have read/write/modify permissions. If not add your account to the admin goup.

Hope this helps

No luck on all your instructions.
Not sure what else to try.
