I'm loading software on to my wife's new PC running Win 7 Pro 64 bit
I did not setup any "admin accounts" or passwords, and have been careful to make sure all software is setup for any user using the computer.
Now, all of a sudden, I'm seeing notices from some of the software saying "contact system administrator" to do some functions because I'm "not authorized"
Is there a global setting in Windows that disables this?
I found where I can set different levels for user account control
I recommend leaving UAC in place, once you get everything setup it's pretty unobtrusive in Win7 (unlike vista). But if you insist, visit the control panel - programs & features and you'll find the UAC settings that you can change.
Type UAC in the search box located in the start menu.
But you only really need to run those applications a few times using "Run as Administrator" on the right-click menu.
I can try...where is that located at on Win 7?
The only thing that I can think of is disabling user account control (UAC) but it may be a catch-22 scenario as you may need to have administrator rights to be able to disable UAC
