Windows 7: What Permissions in a clean install?

What Permissions in a clean install?

This is aside from my post about not being able to install anything. I have the user account control on Never notify that I think works OK. Iím the only one using this machine; itís just me in my house. My entire Permissions system is so messed up; I click on Properties/Security, most have Administrators (ec-HP\Administrators and ec (ec-HP\ec), but occasionally one will have Everyone, Authenticated users, System,etc. Iíll be doing a recovery install and would appreciate advice on what user account to set up and should a single Permission be setup for everything? Iím doing the clean install because I havenít been able to install anything whatsoever. I wonder if that has anything to do with the Permissions. I canít even install an Acronis TI upgrade to do good backkups. I he the recovery disks from HP. and have done a Belarc. ec

If you do a clean install you should not have to touch anything to do with permissions.

Just me, but I always turn off the user account control, but I recommend you set it to at least let you know if somethings gonna happen.
