Hello,

I understand you are stuck on Never Notify for User Account Control (UAC)? Try doing a System Restore if you want to revert.

Hope this helps,

Hello Ian,

After setting your UAC settings and clicking on OK, restart the computer to see if it will apply then.

User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Hope this helps,
