If I am under my admin, there is no problem, because he is admin!
The problem is that UAC does not work, which means I can't have Administrator privileges on any of my standard users.
After I enter my admin's password in the UAC prompt window, the window will be hanging forever.
*The location bar is filling up with green.
And I see "consent.exe" process too, looks like there is a problem with that one.
But I don't have an installation disc.
I wanted to find another way to fix, because I don't want to delete all my files.
And it is expensive, isn't it?

Try creating a new Standard account to see if the problems happen.
If UAC isn't working then you need to repair or reinstall Windows 7. Run SFC again to see if it fixes problems which can save the trouble of finding an installation DVD to run a Repair Install or clean reinstall.
You do not have to buy a new copy of Windows 7 if it came with the computer - you own it for the life of the computer and can reinstall it as often as you want with the Product Key on COA sticker.
See if you can borrow a Windows 7 installation DVD from a friend - any retail installer for the same version will work. If it isn't the same version you can extract the ISO using ImgBurn to unlock all versions and burn an all-versions DVD to Repair Install. I would personally clean reinstall for best performance overall. It's a valuable learning experience which will help you understand Windows 7 and your computer better.
If you must download ISO from the internet, find an official Windows 7 download like is hosted at My Digital Life so you don't have to worry about anything being added. Then burn to DVD to run the Repair Install, which may require you to uninstall SP1 if you don't have an installer with SP1: uninstall Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
Even better is to back up your files and clean reinstall following these steps to get a perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7
