I am not sure what I am experienced has anything to do with UAC, but I suspect it does.
I am logged in as a regular user ("annius") and I am in the administrators group. When I create a folder in my Documents folder, it is owned by "annius" as I would expect. When I create a folder on the desktop, it ends up owned by "Administrator" (I don't
need to answer any prompts to get it owned by Administrator). Subsequently, I can't rename it or put anything inside it.
Could this be because I once "elevated" and as of that moment I my Windows explorer runs as "Administrator"?
This happens regardless of whether I have UAC enabled or disabled.
The only thing that is special is that this happens on a laptop machine that operates inside the windows domain at work when I am at work, then I put it to sleep, and take it out of sleep at home where the domain "is not there". Again, not sure that that
has anything to do with the problem.
