I just installed Windows 7 on a new machine (this is my first WIn7 Machine) and even though I am administrator I can't even create a text file in the root! It give me the "a required privilege is not held by the client" error.

How do I get Win7 just to leave me alone. How do I turn off this crap?

Thanks

Solved my problem but at a cost. Unfortunately, it's Microsoft's issue. The answer given was as good as it seems it can be at the moment. Thanks
