    Hello tenspeed, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    This is normal in a system folder, and is the same way in Windows 7 and Vista.

    The UAC shield for the New -> Folder just indicates that you will be prompted by UAC to approve by clicking on Yes (administrator) or enter an administrator's password (standard user) first before the New Folder is actually created.

    Ah, that's why then. You cannot have anything from an external source (ex: internet, USB, etc...) save directly into a system folder. Instead, they can only save directly into a library, user folder, or Public folder.

    For what you are wanting, you might have the program save into a library instead.
