Regular user cannot delete shortcuts
Dec 22, 2012, 12:23 AM
I am tired of having to fix a pc for my family. Therefore I decided to create two seperate non administrator accounts next to the default administrator account.
On my last install this worked fine. If someone wanted to install software the system would popup and ask the administrator password.
For some reason after a fresh install the newly created users can't even delete the adobe reader shortcut from their desktop.
I guess the rights management is setup differently. How do I fix this?

I don't want the user to be administrator. I want windows to popup asking an administrator pasword to make the user consious that they are doing something they need to think about twice.
Should I delete this and Why can't I remove this?
