Win7 SP1 keeps asking for the administrator.

I installed this software on to a new HDD 2 years
ago and I have had no trouble until 4 weeks ago
when I occasionally get a message that "you need
administrator rights to move/save/alter this
file". What have I done wrong?
I am the only one who uses the machine.

Perhaps you could give an example of the path of the
file giving you trouble. Such as

C:\users\Peter\downloads\my_new_application.exe

Given an example, someone may be able to explain how
it got that way.

Malware can mess things up, so if you had a malware
problem in the last few weeks, that might explain it.
Or at least give an excuse for it happening.

This first article, makes the permissions model seem
almost reasonable.

And then this one, shows just how nuts Windows is :)
Reading articles like this, my brain stops functioning :)
Information overload.
