    administrator permissions/disabling options

    Im sure you have all had this problem but it really is starting to get on my nerves.

    I wanted to move a shortcut to the start menu and as soon as i cut and paste i get the message,
    "you'll need to provide administrator permission to move this folder-continue skip blah blah blah"

    . I have disabled UAC. and don't see why as the only person using this computer and having full administrator rights i have to keep clicking this EVERY time i move a certain file or folder. Please help before i injure my computer.
