    Well neither did I have uac on and I was also the administrator when I installed rFactor and what happened to me was the same issue you had. Then I ran it as an administrator and my problems were solved but for the graphics not running at my preferred resolution so I had to set that manually.

    Have you got an rfactor folder in your documents folder?
