    There are no levels to choose when UAC is disabled, which is then completely another story.

    UAC enabled: prompt will be shown regardless the UAC level.
    Ok, we're kinda going around in circles. My meaning of level is what he has it set to. If it's off, it's off....no prompt. That is all I was trying to get across.

    Yes, reading our recent posts again I can see where the misunderstanding originates. According to my logics, a feature can be enabled or disabled, its level selected only if the feature is enabled in the first place. A disabled feature has no levels, it's just disabled.

    When you're not paying attention anything can happen. I obviously clicked yes instead of no and the rest is history

    That I completely agree with and never disable mine. Still accidents happen. We're human, not robots

    And I won't mention I accidentally deleted my game drive while trying to increase it's size. Completely and utterly my fault. Complete and utter stupidity on my part. But again, we're human

    And no, I don't have those moments often. It is a rarity

    In that case, double check to see if you have the "windir" environment variable like below.

    Technically speaking you can't have UEFI bios. Your either have UEFI - Unified Extensible Firmware Interface, or BIOS - Basic Input/Output System, but not "UEFI BIOS".

    Next question.... is your UEFI updated to the latest version offered by the manufacturer of the motherboard/computer?
