Currently have been running Win7 RTM for few months now on my new HP, having no issues whatsoever, but I must say the Admin rights and UAC are driving me up the wall. You name it, I've tried it. Shell commands, a program called "Take Ownership" (batch file that issues string to assume full auth. over and file/folder), assigning ownership thru GUI... Nothing seems to work 100%, thou. I've had moderate success, however now the only issue left is a strange one. It seems as thou when there is a folder with files and/or other folders inside of it, occasionally regardless of what you do Win7 will NOT allow the folder to be deleted, under ANY circumstances. Once you go into the folder and manually erase the files, then exit the folder and THEN attempt to erase it, only then will it erase. Same annoying message comes up that I need permission from myself in order to erase that folder. Very quirky. Is this a bug or some deliberate hacking counter-measure of some sort the geniuses at M$ have come up with?
