[QUOTE=prim8e;2635150]sorry for my ignorance, I’m new to Win 7 o/s. what is the difference between admin and owner status? where do you create owner status? check my account status in control panel, couldn’t find owner status acct.in terms of installing these programs , just followed the instructions and enable desktop icon status. ( no change from installing under Win XP o/s).[/QUOTE]
Admin and Owner is the same person status but the difference is Admin is a unseen or hidden login but if you unhide the Admin login it will require a password to be set for it. But the Owner aka Admin status owns the rights to the system. Kinda confusing but they are one in the same but only the Owner login is seen not the Admin. I know that for it to have the “Run as Admin” Shield on it must’ve been a user created shortcut aka “Run as Admin” or the program was set to install as default install rather then doing a custom install. You might want to go custom install for any programs next time to see what it is really doing and get a handle on future install in-case it install tool-bars or task-bar icons that you didn’t need or want to have taking valuable system resources. Windows 7 install and setup is very different from XP it has change alot and maybe you would be helped more if you got a Windows 7 book and look into it’s features that would also be a good resource to help with your transition into Windows7 and all its changes.
