Thanks -- but I feel one should point out that running your computer like this isn't the best practice. Change the system settings you need and then get back to running as a normal user.

Do you really need 'god mode' to run LR... nope.

Not sure what you're talking about. God mode is simply a folder that allows you to access all your computer settings in one spot, it isn't like admin vs standard user accounts.

But are you not accessing (I'm in an XP machine at the moment, so I can't test) the settings with heightened security privilegeds?

If not, I apologize for my erroneous post.

Ahh, I see what you mean now. I do leave my system in admin mode for me and all other family members get standard accounts. I ran Vista as a standard user and got sick and tired of entering my password every time I tried to do something, so I went back to admin mode on w7.

Correct...if one doesn't know what they're doing, they shouldn't be making many of these changes. Of course, nobody follows that sage advice, as evidenced by the internet beomg filled with people asking for help or blaming Microsoft or Apple because their computer doesn't run correctly.

Ah, I did find an answer to this on CNET... they suggest you follow this path:

Start > Run > type in the following: fdisk c: /s

That should do it...
