✔ Best Answer
1. The admin user in windows 7 is called Administrator and is disabled for login by default.
2. When you try to change into a folder, where you need administrator priviledges, you have to start e.g. the windows explorer from the start menu by rightclicking it and choose as Administrator.

I think that if you only make a single user account in windows 7 it is defaulted to an admin user. That should have allowed you to access most files.

Any file that you can't is kind of suspect. Either it is protected for some reason or you are not the owner. Try to take ownership but make sure it is not some special file or folder. Could be some odd malware.

You never want to be logged in as the admin user and don't disable uac. You make a standard user account and use it all the time to help prevent malware. Dunno what you have going on.

When you say installed did you do some upgrade of other MS OS?

it's only a kind of admin. The UAC will stop that user from doing things that might be dangerous.
Especially file access to some special files and folder will only be granted, if one starts the Windows Explorer as Administrator.

Can you provide some microsoft web page that tells us why admin is not admin? I have never seen any issue related to this.

Ah sorry, I may have to correct this a little bit.
The normal user, even if he is member of the group of Administrators, has not fully administrative rights.

When you activate the administrator account, which has to be done from a command prompt in Windows 7 Home Premium and is not recommended, you have surely the fully administrative rights to the system.

Couldn't remember, where I read it, sorry.
