Windows 7 + Process Explorer + Patch: [Opening error process]

Hi fooks,

I hope you all can read this, i'm from Belgium so my Englsich is not as good as it might be.

I have bought last year a little notebook with Windows 7 Home Premium on it.
On this machine i am the Administrator, and there are no other people on that, or guestaccounts made.

On my desktop i have the utility Process Explorer 15.3 {the executable only} from the site below
Process Explorer

When i dubbelclick the Process Explorer is see al the services and processes on my machine.

A friend of Peter, came to me with his Desktop PC with a death harddrive, so i bought a new one.
I have a DVD with Windows 7 Home Premium that i bought with that other notebook to help other
people and if my computer have a problem. I use to register than the serial on the case of the people that need help.

When i install a new copy of Windows 7 Home Premiun on his computer, and also unpack the Process Explorer.exe on the desktop and lauch that also as admin i see several services or processes with a Patch: [Opening error process] For exsample winlogon does not link to the normal directory, normaly c:/windows/system32/winlogon.exe { i think that is the right one}


See this screenshot i made:
http://www.freebits.nl/images/190error_pe.jpg



I did some Google search on came on this website:
process explorer shows "error opening process" - BleepingComputer.com

Somebody there says: "Right click on process explorer and select run as administrator"

When i do that those errors disappear and it all looks like normal with the good patch to the services and..... to good icon of Winlogon is also there.


The part i don't understand is why those "error's" not apear on my notebook, on this machine i don't have to run Process Explorere as Admin. I just dubbelclick to .exe, and no erro's are there.


Does anybody know why these error's are there on a normal Desktop without running Process Explorer as Administrator?


A malware infection is not possible because this machine is not on the internet, and i have a orginal Windows 7 Home Premium DVD, and a brand new Hardrive inside.


I can't figure out what is wroung, and this makes a me a little bit crazy :-)
So much to learn i guess.


I hope somebody can help me out with this question.

Many thanks

Hmm, nope i just put the slighter to the lowest position, and click OK.

After that i run Process Explorer again, and these errors are still there.

I think you need to reboot after you change UAC settings for it to take effect.
