    I've recently upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. I used to be able to drag
    and drop selected text, images, etc.. from MS Word, IE 8 and Adobe Acrobat
    Reader 9 into OneNote. Now I can only copy and paste into OneNote. I seem
    to remember having to set permissions to enable drag and drop between
    applications, but can't figure out how to do this. Any suggestions would be
    most appreciated.

    The reason behind is UAC. UAC is trying to protect you from processes
    running with lesser privileges from sending messages to processes
    running with Administrator privileges.
    One solution is to disable UAC. Another is to take care that all
    programs run with the same privileges, e.g. by setting "Run As
    Administrator".

    FWIW:
    1.) UAC has not been made stronger in Win7 - to the contrary.

    2.) It's never recommendable to disable UAC.
