I'm running IE8 on Windows 7 and logging in under a company domain account (not the machine domain). The domain account is assigned to the machine's administrators group. As a workaround for the issue noted in IE 8 Issues, I discovered that if I started IE8 using "Run as administrator," that the IE8 issue noted go away.
Question: With the login account assigned to the Administrators group, why can't I just start IE8 and already be running "as administrator." Is there something I've overlooked in setting up my domain account in Windows 7 that would eliminate the need to use "Run as administrator?"
On a side note, using "Run as administrator" has also worked around a problem I was having with SQL Server Management Studio 2005.
