Solidworks 2010 Installation issue

I have installed the new Solidworks 2010. The desktop icons do not seem to work. When I go to the .exe in the solid works folder under c:\program files and double click on it it stall won't start. It just shows the hour glass for a second then stops. If I right click on the .exe and run as the current user I still get nothing. Now here is the kicker. If I right click on the .exe and run as the following user, then select the same user that is being used in the "Use Current User", and put in my password, then it works. Here are some other points: It doesn't do this with any other application I have ownership and full control rights to every folder and file I am the administrator of the machine Does anybody have any idea why this is happening?
