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?

tried running as admin with no joy and i dont have an rfactor folder in my documents. but i hav managed to get rfactor running by manually editing the config.ini, i have the resolution set but i cant get 32bit colour set! could someone please post their config.ini settings? (preferably on full settings)
