I can not believe that Microsoft has managed to mess this up again! I have never been so annoyed with an OS in my life! I did a clean install of windows to a brand new drive on my pc. I have about 7 other drives hooked up to this thing, that all worked fine when I was running XP. Install was complete of the 64 bit version. I created an account as was required within setup. Log in to find that everything under the sun on my computer now asks me for admin rights. If I want to copy a file, move a file, even open a file! Forget about opening files from my externals.....those just say permission denied. I tried to solve it by: Enabling the admin account on the machine and loggin in there. I AM STILL GETTING ASKED FOR ADMIN RIGHTS! Not only that but, I still can't access files from my drives.....even though I can see them in the explorer window. Permission denied! I disabled the UAC, which does absolutely nothing. STILL ASKING ME FOR ADMIN RIGHTS!!!!!!!!!! And I'm STILL logged in as THE ADMIN!!! This thing is completely useless now! Why would miscrosoft essentially lock a machine's own user OUT OF THEIR OWN MACHINE!??? I should not have to trip around like this just to open files! I'm the only user of this pc and want to navigate through it as I please. Boy if I were Apple right now I would jump all over this issue to make a commercial. I can see it now. "Uh, no sorry you don't have the rights for that" user: "but...." pc:" no no sorry you need to be an admin for that" user: "but I am.... pc (cuts him off) "sorry you will need permission from an admin" and so on...... SOMEONE PLEASE HELP! I HAVE A $400 paperweight!!!!!!!!! If you account for the price of my machine now.....a $1500 paperweight!!!!
