Regular user cannot delete shortcuts Tags: Security Windows 7 Last response: December 23, 2012 1:46 AM in Windows 7 Share sdk December 22, 2012 12:23:32 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?
