    No problem. You are welcome. "Why the CMD pinned to taskbar opens as Administrator?" Humm! It doesn't on my machine.

    You are very welcome. How did you correct your problem with the install disk? Are you saying, in effect, that you ran sfc /scannow from the disc and fixed your problem. Sorry my original link did not work when you got there.
    I actually ran Windows refresh. I tried running the sfc /scannow, but I must of kept choosing the wrong drives because it kept telling me I did something wrong. Refresh did the trick though.

    Use I can see that the drive thing can be a problem. Doing a refresh was a great solution. I was going there next. Really. But, regardless, way to go.

    If you want to pin it to the taskbar, right click on the icon in the taskbar when it is open.

    I removed the admin-CP from the taskbar & added a new one.
    It didn't work like the old one.
    All I did the first time was pin it to the taskbar.
    This is a mystery.

    Why the CMD pinned to taskbar opens as Administrator I don't know.
    It just does.
    Answer is simple. There are 2 shortcuts. One with admin and one without. So depending what you pin, that's what you get.
