I am having the exact same problem. If I switch to the User account
everything runs fine. If I switch back to my administrator account I have to
right click and "run as administrator" to get media player to start. This
problem occured after having Vista Home Premium (new, not upgrade) for almost
3 months. Everything runs fine if I turn off UAC, which I don't want to do. I
would really appreciate some help.
