I am login into Windows7 as a user from Administrator group.
Still, I am required to type user/password of administrator for every administrative operation I am doing. So I have to type the same user/password of my user to be able to continue.
I want to remove the need to type the user/password for ANY operation I am donig since I am logged in with admin user anyway. How can I do it?

This second password is called User Account Control; it's meant to prevent programs you run from doing things with Administrative privileges without your knowledge or consent.

This link has instructions for changing or disabling User Account Control.
