No, I don't see any problems with the Documents folder.

I sure wish the UAC would have a "details" tab that would show exactly what was trying to change what :/ would make this kind of debugging a LOT easier.

I agree. Troubleshooting a problem when you are blind is frustrating. It would be nice to have any hints of what is going on.

The lock does not indicate a lack of permissions.

Hello,

I think the Run as administrator is checked for that shortcut. Right Click on the Word shortcut Go to Properties and go to Compatibility Tab and make sure Run as administrator is unchecked.

Hope this helps,

I have been getting conflicting ideas here. Some say to check run as administrator and some say to uncheck. I have done both with no change in behavior.

Are you running in Compatibility mode ?? I asked to uncheck that because "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes.." is actually UAC prompt when to launching an application with admin rights. So make sure you uncheck both Compatibility mode & Run as administrator check box in Compatibility Tab.

You are lucky if you only have Word doing this. A number of programmes on my computer are driving me crazy with this message. I got Photoshop to stop doing it by running as administrator, but eventually turned the UAC off for the others. Win7 still did it after I installed a new primary SSD and reinstalled Win7. Completely new install on a new drive. Every time I install a programme I get asked the same question, but I can live with that, just don't want to get asked every time I run the programme.

I've attached a file showing how to get rid of the nag screen, but the procecdure requires secpol.msc which I understand is not part of Home Premium. If you've got Pro or Ultimate you are ok.

If none of this is working for you, you can download a wonderful tool free from Microsoft to help you find out what is going on.

at www.sysinternals.com download Process Monitor. It takes a bit to configure it and it has to run with Admin rights. But it will tell you what files, and what registry keys it is using that may be a problem.
