Windows 7: Can't Access User Account Control Settings

04 Sep 2014   #11

Windows 10 Pro X64

So you didn't see the windows shown in steps 2, 3 and 4?

How did you create the install DVD? Did you use ImgBurn or some other program? Did you burn at 4X speed?

can I reinstall the windows 7 package - this should removing all settings - and wipe clean the hard drive?
Yes, if you can get to the correct screens during the process. See here:

Hi Ztruker,

No. it went straight to start windows then select user account. it didn't go to the black screen - option 2 - at the time I couldn't download any software/programs, it would not let me have access any download material - I used the windows 7 disc supplied - but all is fixed now - I took it to a guy who worked it out - he said the user command/control section was corrupted and that's why is wasn't allowing me to do anything - now it works - I appreciate your help with my problem. hope you have a good weekend. thank you.
