I now have temporarily Windows Vista and I have a question concerning administrator privileges and "Program Files" directory. When for example I save a simple text file with administrator privileges in "program files" folder, I can't then see the file without them (like from WinRAR). But when I open WinRAR, for example, but with administrator privileges, I can see the file then. And vice-versa. It seem like there is a double filesystem (at least in "program files") - one for programs with administrator privileges and one for the programs without them.


Thank you, looking fwd for reply,
