Problem with access rights on Windows server 2008

On a Windows server 2008 (new machine), I have granted local administrator rights to a user of the domain, because that user has a lot of stuff to do on that machine.
That's okay
Now being logged as that user, often when I try to do some task on files or directories, the behavior of windows "depends" on the way I do it
For example at a DOS prompt, erase myfile says access is denied
Doing it via the windows explorer, I get a popup saying "you'll need to provide administraotr permission to delete this file"
I click continue, and windows delete it without any other request
My real problem is that a software package I use on that server seems to react like in the DOS prompt : access is denied and I can't do my job
What I want is that Windows consider that my user account should be able to do all these tasks without such constraints so that my software will work correctly !
What shall I do or configure ?

easiest way is create a shorcut on your desktop, right click, run as administrator

I tried that but my application does not work correctly when it run "as" admin (I tried)
It need to run with its own special account
I need to find a way to "elevate" the priviledge of a full set of executable, still being run by my special account
