Windows 7: provide admin permission???

provide admin permission???

Hi, Hope this is the right place to post this...
last night I logged on to the net via my nokia N85 and it asked me to set up a home group network, I chose the share everything 1 (with the bench chair) and all went well.
Till I noticed that now I get asked to "provide administrator permission" when doing such things as changing the name of a shortcut on the desktop or editing a system config file (for a game).
I also noticed now when I open up something like the games screenshot folder I can only see the pix if I press "compatibility files" never had to do it before last night...
It seems really dump cos I'm the only user/admin and it's not asking for a password, it just makes me provide permission every time...
can't find anything worthwhile on google, so any help would be nice THANX

PS. Im running win7 pro 64bit and UAC is turned to "never notify", it seems related to program files only or the shortcuts to them.

Am I seeing duplicates or those topics getting so popular nowadays?

Ok anyway, if turning off didn't helped you
User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

And you think you are still being to much limited you may try this method:
Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable
The built-in Administrator account is an account that has full access and permission on the computer. This will show you how to enable or disable the built-in Administrator account in Windows 7.
So try using build-in Administrator

Warning: From security point of view using Build-in Administrator considered high security risk.
But as I already told on the hundreds of the same threads, it's your system and your choice.

I have showed you how to do and warned that it is insecure and unsafe.
I myself is under Limited User Account not even thinking about using build-in Administrator for my regular stuff.

If you need more information, just ask.
