  1. When making a right click on the Explorer and select "Run as administrator" it doesn't start the Windows Explorer with admin rights. The Windows Vista/7 Explorer includes a special function to block such requests.

    To disable it, start regedit.exe and go to the following key:


    make a right click on Permissions and set your user as owner of the key and give your current user writing permissions.

    Next, delete or rename the value RunAs. Now the Elevated-Unelevated Explorer Factory is disabled and you can start the Explorer with admin rights.


    This helps you delete files, for which you need admin rights.

    Have fun :)

    If you dont wanna mess up with RegEdit there is the proper way to modify that RunAs field

    from your Administrator user open the Run.. window and write dcomcnfg.exe and press enter. The Component Services window will open (same from Administrator Tools).

    From Component Services - > Computer - > Local Computer - > Config DCOM select Elevated-Unelevated Explorer Factory, right click and select Properties


    Select Identity Pane, you will see first option selected (Interactive User), select the second option (i have italian windows 7 i dont know what the english translate the second option to).
