Before I go into detail, I understand that saving things to the C drive, whether it be by a user or a program, can generally be a bad idea. I have two computers currently running Windows 7. -On both computers, I use an account with administrator privileges -On both computers UAC is set at the default level. For some reason, on one computer I am capable of saving files on the C drive without having to run a program with UAC, but on the other computer this does not work. Similarly, if I right click on a program in my C drive and click "Create Shortcut" I receive the message "Windows can't create a shortcut here. Do you want the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead?" What I'm trying to convey by point this out is this is not a problem that I have with a particular program, but an issue I'm experiencing with the operating system in general. Anyone have any idea why this would come up on one computer and not my other?
