Windows 7: I've no idea how to call this, but i need help, please..

I've no idea how to call this, but i need help, please..

Hi guys,
I joined here hoping i can fix this problem the easier way. I'm by no means pc expert, so consider this as a noob question. Let me get to the point.

I was getting this update warning every few minutes, which i believe was fake, and i saw it's coming from consent.exe, so i went in system32, found it and shift+delete. I was happy that messages stopped, but i can't run most programs now. I even got a copy of consent.exe sent me by a friend, thought i could just paste it back there and will be fine, but i am not allow to modify that, and most of the folders on my pc, most likely because this file is missing, so i'm pretty much trapped. (Can't run system restore either)

Now i know if i reinstall the system it will be normal, but i just did that 2 weeks ago and had everything set up properly by now, i really hope there is another way to fix this.

Thanks in advance.

You need to run sfc /scannow to get the system to repair itself, but you're not going to be able to elevate a command prompt without consent.exe (it's the entry point to the secure desktop to show you the UAC prompt).

You'll have to follow this tutorial to get it running now.

wanted to call it D but the system suggested I call it E
I just initialised my 1TB hard Drive (which is still empty) and wanted to call it D but the system suggested I call it E because other programs may wish to use the D that has been allocated to the Optical Drive. So I left it at E. Any particular reason why I can't go back in and change...

No idea
I was brought a box last night, a friend of my dad's friend needed help with their old computer. I agreed. The computer is an old Dell Dimension 4700. Pentium 4 CPU, 508MB RAM running Windows XP, but I believe the issue is hardware related. I finished cleaning the viruses from the hard drive and...

Any idea how she did this or to fix it.
I'm attempting to fix my sister's computer (not easy being 150 miles away). Some how she seams to have changed her administrative account to a guest account, or so she claims. With our hectic schedules we've only been able to do e-mail tag on the problem but I don't even know how that's possible. I...
System Security
No idea what this is
I didn't know what to say about it but it's been happening for a few weeks now. Randomly and sometimes when explorer restarts. Could someone explain it to me? There are like two extra windows that do nothing and it doesn't just happen with this one program but almost all that are open at the time.
