On this topic of windows administrator, anyone got a how 2 web site on this? I think this is a big part of the problem when installing SDR software. When people have devices installed (downloaded) but keeps saying not found some times this is the problem, it bit me for a while. I am not great with windows 7 and wish to learn more also. If it wasn't for the administrator problems me and windows 7 would get a long.

All it takes is one typo these days. I did that during an install for XP
when it was fairly fresh. A quick scan from another computer showed the
virus. I restarted the install formatting the disk in the process. Of course,
I had no AV running interference at the time. With an AV your probability
drops a couple orders of magnitude. But it's still non-zero.
