It happens when running an executable and sometimes when deleting items it will ask you again to make sure...

Maybe my account isn't a FULL admin account :dunno:

This is an example of one of the messages

Welcome to the wibbly world of UAC.

Thought you mean't a different message, ie the one that appeared in XP when you try to run an .exe for the first time you downloaded, that one drives me nuts.

Basically, you installed that folder with admin rights enabled so you need to up your priviledges to delete that folder again. The little shield on continue is a giveaway, once you press it and have UAC enabled you will have to authorise it.

Not perfect, but most secure :eek:

Personally have UAC disabled at the moment, but I feel I am one of those that has full control of their own PC.

Trojans strike now! :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
