Using Program Files Folder in Win7

Is it still possible to put files and folders into the "Program Files" Folder with VBscript in Win7?  I tried and couldn't get it to work even with Admin password.  It wouldn't copy files and the folder I created was read only.  I tried to change it but it always went back to read-only.  Any idea?

Can you run the vbs file from the Administrator's "Documents" directory?

Here's also a sample script to run a file as an admin in Vista\Windows 7.  Maybe the objfile syntax has similar functionality?

Set objSh = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
objSh.ShellExecute "notepad.exe", "" , "", "runas", 1

Have you tried running the script as administrator?
