OK, so I enabled it.

How do I make myself equal to the Administrator? (And still auto-log me in, not just show that user selection screen at boot)

Anytime there is more than one user it has to go to that screen so that you can choose which you want to run. I suspect you are trying to do something other than just be GOD on the computer. We might be able to help with that

OK, what I'm trying to do is give my user account all the rights of the Administrator account.

If that's what you mean by making myself God, then that's what I'm trying to do. I'm used to XP where a single user is the same as Administrator... and here somebody tells me that it's more of a limited admin :/

Your user name "drfsupercenter" can either have been set up as a std user, or as an admin ( a member of the admin group). If set up as admin you are all set. If not you can log on as Super admin and change your user name to a member of the admin group. either way once your user name is a member of the admin group ( and there can be many ppl in the admin group) then you have all the rights you will need. the Super admin you jst enabled is for emergencies, and for administration of remote machines.

So this means that my account (Danny) is set as an admin?
And I can re-disable the Administrator account? (Which is what I assume you mean by Super Admin?)

'Always on top' somehow triggered by ALT key
Hi folks, This is one of those weird things that's actually followed me around since the Windows 2000 days! I suspect back then the culprit was TweakUI, but since there isn't such a program for Win7 I don't know how it's returned once again. Basically, if I tap the ALT key on a focused window...
