Programs do not start

Ok just got me Win 7 Build 7600 x64. Why wait week for MSDN :P I had Few before that, clean installed it. And now I have major issue. Most of the programs simply dont run. You can see them in task manager, but they dont show up. While running as administrator it works just fine but few extra unneeded clicks are very annoying. I tried playing with UAC but without any results. Did 3 reinstalls already. Any ideas?

I take it you are running as a std user, not admin and you aren't a member of the admin group. Is that right?

Fresh install, only member is admin. Ive created another admin and normal user, same issue. Maybe they added some option that im missing? Ive installed primary drivers firefox and few other essential programs, nothing fancy. I have no idea :/

It feels like a permission thing (maybe take ownership of the entire drive) Im assuming the app are in program files, and x86 program files (for the 32bit), right?

Ok... Took owner of drives changed permisions for all groups. Still cant run **** without 'run as admin'. I dont feel like instaling older version :/ Edit: I think I traced the problem. For some bizzare reason drivers for Asus Xonar DX made all crap itself. Unistalled works. Restored system, installed all but them - works. Funny indeed. Worked fine on 7264 or whatever i had before. :/ Gotta find better one then rc1 for win 7 i guess.
