I did and it worked, but you should not have to do it when you are an administrator. Something is strange. Could it have anything to do with hardware as the motherboard?
HTech, even the built in administrator account in Win 7 is somewhat limited. It is not a wide open admin account such as we had in XP. This is part of Win &'s increased security. It can be annoying at times; but I have gotten used to it. It no longer frustrates me.

IDK whether this will work but give it a shot.

Click Start button, in the Search box or Run box type: GPEDIT.MSC
That will bring up the Group Policy Object editor.

Navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Attachment Manager. ENABLE the policy called "Do not preserve zone information in file attachments".

Close the GP editor, then logoff and logon to your computer.

I've never had this problem before. I got it after I took out all the components and put them in another case.

This may sound odd, but how about, creating another admin account and turning off UAC in it and check the issue.
