If your user account is not an admin account, and there is one on the machine you may need to get their approval.

Hello alsharif and welcome to Seven Forums.

A lot depends on what kind of account you're using. The two basic kinds of accounts are Standard and Administrator.

With a standard account you can use most of the computer's installed programs. You generally cannot make software and hardware changes, access hidden system files, or make changes to the computer that affect other users. If you're using a standard account, you may have to provide an administrator's password before you're allowed to do certain things.

If you're sharing a computer and you're not the one who initially set it up, you probably have a Standard account. But if it's your computer and you set it up, you would have been prompted to create a user account which, by default, is an administrator account.

EDIT: Ken beat me to it. He always did have faster fingers on the keyboard! And uses fewer words!!

Do you have a Restore Point that goes back prior to when you made the changes?

Try turning your User Account Control settings down to Never Notify. It could be a problem with the pop-up message asking you whether or not you would like to proceed.

Don't think this will help but it shouldn't hurt. Try running a System File Checker scan just in case you might have some damaged or corrupt system files. If it finds any problems run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If you're still having the security issue you might consider a Repair Install. It should reset Windows 7 to its default settings and hopefully fix whatever happened.

Repair Install

And for future reference, if you're going to experiment with different settings, or install/uninstall programs, etc it's a real good idea to create a new restore point or, even better, a system image on an external hard drive before making any changes.
