With IE 6 you could right click on it and do a Run As... command with it to run in elevated rights in which case you could access the C:\ by typing that into the address bar and move around in Windows. This was a huge short cut that was used so you didn't have to log the user off in order to do something specific. With IE8 and above though, it opens up a new window that keep the current permissions of who's logged in and I can't seem to find away around this problem. I've looked it up on Google but I haven't really found any fix for it. This is with IE8 and Win XP. We haven't moved to IE 9 yet as some of our apps at work are having issues with it, specifically MS Matrix. We're not migrating to Win 7 until Feb of next year. Anyone got any ideas to try to would allow the use of admin rights to specific folders on the c:\ drive without having to log the user off in order to do so? Logging the user off isn't the worst thing in the world however there are days that we've got a shit ton of work to do and every little bit of time helps sometimes (to put into perspective, we used to have 7 of us and there are now three of us with the same mount of work).
