    Windows 10 UAC Issue

    Hey guys,

    This is driving me up a wall. So I just upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10. Most things are running just fine.

    However anything that requires UAC does not work.

    Setting Compatibility does not work
    Running as Admin does not work

    I get error such as "Windows 10 The Extended attributes are inconsistent"

    So I try uninstalling them and I get. "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"

    SO I go try and turn UAC off, when I do I hear a windows error sound with no error.

    I cannot run Admin CMD prompt and my account says it is Admin.

    Please help!


    I found a post on how to fix this - Changing my Sound scheme to default windows fixed this issue....WHY this effects UAC is beyond me but it is fixed now!

    Okay, this IS strange. It worked for me, as well. I'd like to find the original article you read.

    I don't know about Zakka but this is where I found it:

    Solved! How to fix Error

    Same issue but strangely I had not changed any sound settings or themes to my knowledge! Happened just after a large update to Windows 10 along with booting issues that seem to be related to my video card.
