Apologies if this is an old one, but I simply can't find good answers, and I'm happy to pay the points.
I recently moved from Windows XP to Windows 8. I hate it. Virtualized system folders, things not showing up where I move them, permissions, nag boxes, etc.
Sometimes it doesn't seem to understand that I'm an administrator. In fact, I'm the only user!
I'm the only one who ever touches this computer, and I have always had multiple excellent anti-virus/anti-malware coverage.
I'd like to turn off every permission thingie item that Windows 8 can throw at me, so it works like an XP box. Every one. Can someone help?
