The next step is to try a SFC
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Run 3 times if errors are found.

I cannot, that's been one of my core problem from the beginning, as i first discovered I couldn't run exes that require admin privileges, I tracked it back to my UAC

However, I've noticed that I suddenly have admin privileges again, however I can't change UAC settings still
Thanks, and sorry for me not realising to use safemode earlier
Some help with UAC will still be appreciated
I thought you got that power back.
Do the SFC
