turn them down again if its causing you problems ?

Simply go to the start orb and type "user" and third or fourth choice on the list should be "change user account control settings" with a little flag next to it, click that and set to your desired level

Try a system restore to a point before you altered your UAC settings.

If that doesn't work you can assume your user profile is corrupted.

The best way round that one is to create a new user account, set it up as you want it, and then delete the old one.

OK, thanks for the update, but don't forget your computer is more at risk by turning UAC off.
