    i must be doing it wrong then because it wont let me move it, saying something about .DAT files, and even if i say no to them and the folder is on do it still looks at c drive to save stuff :(

    edit: also instead of making a new thread - how do you make certain programs run as admin without having to right click on the link and selecting it, run as admin default
