I got a new laptop today and the dude at the computer store had set up my account which is showing as my name and it says that it the administrator. There is only one user account that I can see. This is my virgin foray into Windows 7. I managed to get it to read the drives on my home network. When I go to delete a file or if I try to save a file I opened (excel in this case) it says I don't have rights to do so. In the case of the delete I can select "as administrator" and it will delete it but saving the excel I am having to save as a copy. I searched through threads that had info about administrator but there are so many threads that I can't find the answer I am looking for. I have some beta software that I am testing that I really need to get on here but I have to deactivate on the old laptop first. I went to control panel - user accounts but can't see what is wrong. I was ok at XP and I was lucky enough to be able to skip past Vista. I hope the learning curve is not too long as I just want to get this thing working. I would greatly appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.
