"Administrator Accounts" in Vista have less privileges than they did in
XP. This is done to tighten security, and in your case, prevent people
people from making improper manual changes to the "Program Files" and
"Program Files (x86)" folders, which could lead to system malfunctions.
Before submitting this post, I done a quick test on both folders by
attempting to create a folder in each. In both cases, all that was
required that I respond to a UAC prompt to continue. This is normal
behavior for Vista.
