The key to this behavior is where are you creating / saving / renaming these
The folder structure in Vista has changed from previous Windows versions.
With a different security model, you may need to rethink some ways that you
have always done things in order to maintain the integrity of the new
structure and avoid all of the elevation prompts.
Any user created files should be placed somewhere in that users account
folders under C:\Users\your username or the C:\Users\Public. If you try to
save these files in areas such as, C:\Program Files, C:\Windows, the root of
C:, etc, they will be subject to the elevation prompts and permissions like
you are describing.
