[R] Location of libraries in Windows

I'm preparing to install 2.13, so I need a clarification about package
location on disk.
On window the packages I have installed are under
and the ones that come with R are under "C:\Program Files\R\library"
If I execute update.packages() from the R gui, it fails because it finds
e.g. Matrix as a package that should be updated
but the process cannot write under R\library.
I failed to change permissions for this directory (I tried hard...) so
I'm forced to run Rterm.exe as administrator just to
I would ask if moving all directories (except maybe base) from R\library to
R\win-library\2.12 could be a "good thing to do". Or should I simply not
update packages that come with R?
Thanks for your help!
