Windows 7: Can't change my UAC levels?

Can't change my UAC levels?

My problem is that windows does nothing when I press the button to change the UAC levels. I click on UAC settings, and nothing happens. What is wrong here? Everything I tried to click on other control panel stuff works.

I can't even see the slider from UAC.

Welcome to Seven Forums siruncealot. I don't usually go stratight to the System File Checker. But in your case, I think it may be the place to start.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

See if that fixes it, if not let us know. A Guy

Thank You!

I really don't know how that scan fixed but it did I was going to ask for this other problem about Control Panel not responding but it stopped.

Thanks, it sucks that I had to go through like 3 different sites to ask this question and nobody got the answer for me . Some even thought I was trolling

I tried to do the sfc scan and it said that it had found some corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.

The biggest issue im having is trying to install Firefox 4 beta, and it is saying that i dont have the necessary requirements, and i need to log in as admin. Some other websites said i needed to change the UAC levels however when i click the link to change it, a blank window pops up for a sec and then it goes away nothing really happening. Any suggestions?[IMG]file:///C:/Users/Jess/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]

I have this same problem. Many links on my computer have the UAC shield beside them, and if I click on any of those links, nothing happens. I can't add a user, change my UAC controls. I can't even do a factory reset. I have done the sfc/ scannow command several times, and there are still several errors on my computer.

I have done a couple of System Restores to previous dates, but they haven't helped.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Hello,

Could you try a repair install?

I can't do a repair install. My computer came with Windows 7 already installed, so it didn't come with the disc. Is there any other way to do a repair install?

Not unless you can borrow someone else's discs. If you can get a DVD from someone else, we can work with it, even if it's not the same edition (Home Premium, Ultimate, etc). The only thing that matters is whether it is 64-bir or 32-bit. Make sure it's the same bit version as you have.
