Resolve problems with User Account Control (UAC) in Windows® 7
Are you facing problems when using UAC on Windows 7? Find out how to fix them.
Windows 7 is the latest operating system release from Microsoft. Windows 7 has many advanced features such as Windows Defender, Windows Search, Windows Gadgets and so on. Windows 7 also has a feature known as UAC (User Account Control). UAC is a security feature that has been incorporated into the OS so that unwanted applications or software would not be able to modify the system files of Windows 7. The user access control would immediately pop up a window asking users whether a particular application has to be given the rights to access the system files and if the application is unknown, users can decline so that system files would not be damaged. Although using the UAC is easy, there are some problems that might come up with the use of it. These include UAC not working, UAC not allowing users to execute an application, UAC causing system freeze etc. Such problems might be because of many reasons such as malware infections, issues within the registry, problems with some of the system files etc.
Below mentioned detail gives users more information regarding ways to fix issues with UAC in Windows 7:
- Remove malware
- Clean system registry
- Repair OS
Malware can cause many problems on a system. The issues with UAC on your Windows 7 system might be because of the presence of malware in the system. Malware cause UAC related issues by infecting system files associated with the working of the UAC and modifying them. Such problems can be easily resolved by removing the malware from the system using a reputed antivirus program.
Clean system registry
Registry on Windows 7 is the place where all information regarding the functioning of the system are stored and accessed. If the registry entries of the UAC are in conflict with other registry entries on the system, issues would come up. Windows 7 users having UAC related problems are recommended to clean the registry of the system using registry cleaning software to solve issues.
If some of the system files associated with the functioning of UAC on Windows 7 got damaged in some way, then issues would come up every time the UAC is used. In such cases, the problem can be only solved by repairing the Windows 7 OS using the default OS repair tool and the original installation disk. If the UAC problem seems to have come up after some changes to system files were made, using the System Restore to restore the system to previous good functional state might also solve the problem.
