Windows 10: No UAC and the service did not respond to the start or control request

    No UAC and the service did not respond to the start or control request

    I am trying to enter my serial number for AVG but I cannot get the program to proceed, I get an error message every time, the more info link leads to:

    which tells me that it requires UAC elevation. Except it will not show up at all on Windows 10. I Googled the problem but only results on how to disable UAC were provided, there was nothing on it not showing up at all. Immediately following, I get the following error "the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion" Which only results including Microsoft results pertained to W98 and dot net framework 1.1. There isn't anything on Windows 10 on the message. I wasted no time providing feedback on the page via "no this was not helpful" and mentioned that this is Windows 10 we're talking about, not Windows 98.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Edit: It turns out that almost nothing is working, task manager, CMD, anything administrative all gives that error

    How did you get to Windows 10? Did it come with the computer or did you upgrade? If upgrade, how long ago. If less that 30 days you can roll back to the previous OS and try again.

    Follow these instructions: How to Go Back to the Previous Windows from Windows 10

    If you decide to do this, please make an image backup first to protect yourself from loss of data or programs. I recommend using Macrium Reflect Free and put the image on an external USB 3 hard drive ($60 US for a 1TB drive).
