Windows 7: Ongoing Annoying Problem!

Its a good thing I'm in that other 0.1 %.
There is something else going on here. Even with UAC at its default settings you shouldn't be getting nagged as much as you are. I have UAC turned off and don't get any nags for passwords. And before anybody lectures me, yes I know what its for and what it does. I made a choice, I turned it off, and I can live with the consequences.
You might want to create a new user profile and log in with that. Then see what happens. Have you changed any file or folder permissions from their default settings?

I always enjoy it, when finding someone that thinks like I do.

so i downloaded windows 7 start button changer, ran as admin and picked my start button, all it did was open up my libraries folder and didn't change the start button upon restart...

this is the last part in my theme and i would love to get the fix, if there is one

i HAVE taken control over the necessary folders...

From the looks of that you are creating your own problems by changing folder permissions. Modifying system files with none standard themes can also lead to problems. This isn't meant to be lecture, I'm just stating the facts.

Alpha is correct. When you go changing system files, you open a lil gate that lets the bugs in

Another +1 on the changing permissions on system folders issue. It's not only unneccessary, it never fails to be the biggest part of the problem.

Really tystuh, you have received some excellent advice in this thread and I seems that you have chosen not to take that advice. Clearly that is your right and I respect that but what is the point of asking for advice if you have no real intention of taking it. And to add what some may interpret as a sarcastic laugh is really not in keeping with the ethos of this Forum!
