Quick Launch and Deep Administrator Privliges

I just had to completely re-install Win 7 pro 64 bit and lost some of my settings. Two important ones were the quick launch option and the other was the "deep" administrator privileges. Can some one out there tell me how to regain those two options?

Windows 7 by default hasn't activated it. So the thing to do is exactly the same as you did it before. will give you a lot of links to instructions on how to do that, in case you forgot. Choose the one that works for you.

Sorry, I can't help with the other question.

That worked, thanks, now on to my other issue, the administrator privileges in the user accounts doesn't have complete privileges, there was a setting in the files somewhere that opened these privileges up and I don't remember where or what that was.

Can we cover priviledges versus permissions?

In reply to: Thanks

Once in awhile you find a need to cover permissions versus privileges.

That is, even the mightiest of "admin" accounts is not allowed to delete a file or folder that is in some read only folder. That's nothing to do with privilege but a permissions issue. So far, there is no God account that would over rule such things.
