I have several external hard drives that I use for storing backups. I decided to hook them all up and check for duplicate files. The duplicate file finder found over 5,000 duplicates. After doing some checking, it seems to be correct, I have about 5,000 duplicates scattered over several drives. I decided to start deleting and was going to use the automated delete process of the duplicate file finding program. Now for my problem...

Win 7 started giving me a popup window saying something like "you must give administrator permission to perform this act", I would click OK and then a 2nd window would popup saying to confirm the first action. This continued for every single file! I can't sit here and click ok twice for all 5000 files!!

Is there some way to turn off this administrator warning popup?

This is probably the root of your problem. Enable UAC once again when you complete your current task.
