Context menu opens incorrectly

HI.

I had a problem erasing files from the virtual store on Windows 7 Premium 64 Bit. I am logged on as administrator.

When legacy applications write to C:\Program Files\ when User Account Control is activated but have no elevated rights, Windows redirects the writes to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\. When right-clicking on a file in this folder and clicking on Eraser on the context menu did not open the next menu. That is why I could not erase files from this folder.

Did you close the running instance of Eraser before explicitly running it again as Administrator? That is the only way that Eraser will run elevated. In Vista and Windows 7, your user account may have administrative privileges, but will behave as a standard account unless you explicitly start an application 'as Administrator'.
