Vista/IE is not going to be happy to save something you are downloading into
Program Files. I think you can class this as, "feature, not bug". Think
Nevertheless, you should be able to use Windows Explorer to go pretty much
anywhere in Program Files. And, of course, copy a file into that area.
Generally, even if you are operating from an administrator account, you are,
nevertheless, operating programs, like Internet Explorer, in user mode.
Again, "feature, not a bug".
My own inclination with a personal computer not logging onto a domain would
be to create two accounts, one an adminstrator with a password and the other
a user, and then operate the computer as the user. You will actually get
fewer UAC prompts that way, and, generally, they will make more sense.
I have no idea why Media Player would "skip".
