    Hi Der Snoober,
    Please try running it as Admin then change the property as shown by David.

    Hi Topgundcp,

    I already found out that by running it as an admin I can change it. But thanks for your post anyway .

    Hi again Rover,

    It appears that I am a day late and a dollar short with my test results (as requested).

    No errors or warnings. Let me think about this for a bit and I'll get back to you. I'm going to see if I can break my computer to emulate your PCs behavior. However, maybe someone else will have some good ideas in the interim.

    Very good. You might want to change the property of the power shell shortcut to run as Admin then it will always run as Admin. Just right click on it->open the file location then change the property.

    Cheers !!!

    You are quite welcome. I guess the moral of this story is "no naps on the job." Glad you got it fixed.
