Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600

How are you trying to access UAC?

Type UAC into the search box on the Start panel. Click on "Change User Account Control settings" That should open it for you.

Ooop, sorry are you looking for "User Accounts" or "User Account control settings"?

Paste this in to your Explorer Address bar and press enter: Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts

around the uac settings, that being as a result of office 97 adjusting registry
can anyone help as this is tricky i simply can no longer access " change account control setting"
