    UAC dead click problems


    Firstly hello! I'm new here and am having a torrid time after 'upgrading' to Win 10

    The first thing that happened was that I couldn't open any photos - I got the 'this app can't be opened with UAC disabled'. Then I couldn't open things like calculator with the same message, so I did a little digging about changing the UAC (sliding the bar up and down) and it won't let me! If I search for user account control in the search bar it lets me search for it but is a dead click - nothing happens!!! I am allegedly the administrator on this laptop but apparently can't really do anything! Please help! Thanks in advance, Ross

    Enable the UAC but set it to not to bother you.

    Thanks for the reply Gary, I think maybe I didn't explain myself very well - I can't enable, disable or adjust the UAC settings at all. It's very frustrating!

    Run CMD as admin and enter the following, then restart:

    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "EnableLUA" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Everything was hunky dory until just after I downloaded CrystalDiskInfo via Cnet. Probably just a coincidence as I have had no trouble using either before. I E refused to start and the only option was to reload W 10 afresh.
