I'm having trouble deciphering who gets the prompt and who doesn't....but one of you probably has UAC on and the other has it set to the lowest settings...or off.

Is this one computer with two accounts, or are you comparing two computers...one is yours and one is your friends?

i just built this computer and as far as im concerned there should only be 1 account on this new computer i built for my friend. I just want to know how to get it where it does not ask you or make you right click and run as administrator

When he gets the machine, he'll have to set himself up as Administrator. Apparently you are the Administrator right now.
