    Get 'Run as administrator' for .log files in context menu

    I understand. No "run" in this case. This log file was produced when I run scannow, and it is C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. When I try to open it (with Notepad), I get "Access is denied".

    Get 'Run as administrator' for .log files in context menu

    I have not been able to find a general method for adding 'Run as administrator' in Windows 7 context menu. I need it specifically for .log files now, but would like to have a generic method (if such exists) for any file. Help would be appreciated. Hans L

    SOLVED Scannow could not fix

    Update: the important file was corrected. Some 'speech' files were not, but I am not sure which. Not important now. Regards, Hans L

    Visual Studio & Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable

    I'm the administrator, but not always

    Hello: Win7 Ultimate, 64-bit. I am logged in as the administrator, but often, I am prompted to log in to a program as the administrator. That, to a knowledgable but not an expert user, is very confusing. I suspect this might be an issue is one of my scheduling tasks. How do I make sure I am...

    Yes, but it could not repair some files, and all of the attempted repairs had to do with "speech", so I am not sure that they had anything to do with Help.

    Can't I automatically replace corrupt system files?

    "Start in : ..."

    Now, I feel a little sheepish for not thinking of telling you that I always have Path\xxx.exe in Target. Wouldn't that make Start in unnecessary?
