Please return control of my computer to me RRS feed

  • Question

  • Microsoft, you need a profile for IT professionals that effects the display and functionality of the system.  I just bought Widows 7 Pro for my home desktop.  I am highly annoyed by the lack of control given to me.  The system will not let me edit and store files in the Program Files folder, though I was trying to add a Cisco pcf file to the Shrewsoft VPN client folder.  I am no longer allowed to login as Administrator though that is what I am.  I prefer to see everything.  I prefer words to pictures.  Yes, I know how to change the display themes, etc.  What I am saying is that Microsoft should not attempt to shield me from controlling my computer.  It is mine!  I do not use my computer for entertainment.  I use it to develop software and databases.  I use email and occasionally use Word and Excel.  My main programs are Visual Studio, Notepad, and SQL Management Studio.  Please give us IT pros a break.
