Are you an administrator or user?

Hello Drumtucker,

The shield icon indicates that you will need to provide permission in UAC before that item will run or open. Since you have UAC turned off, you will not be able to access it in a standard account. Only from within a administrator account instead. Since you are in a administrator account, see if turning UAC back on may allow you to open it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Not sure why Dave 1812 answered...
but yes I am the ONE AND ONLY user.

I just raised UAC one click up, but need to reboot to invoke, so it may be awhile before I can see if that worked.

Thanks, will report back when I've checked it out.

Drumtrucker,

Check in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer if there is a NoManageMyComputerVerb entry. If so, then:

1. Double-click on NoManageMyComputerVerb if it exists.

2. Set this value to 1 to disable the Manage option.
Set this value to 0 to enable the Manage option.

3. Restart the computer.

that sounded promising, but no such luck. No reg entry anywhere for 'nomanagemycomputer'.

And like I said, CAN get there through start>admin tools>comp management

just a mystery to solve, eh?

Hi Drumtruck,
You can try System File checker
1, Start type cmd
2, Right click and Run as admin
3, Then type sfc /scannow
