Vista Adminastrator Problems

Posted: 08-08-2008, 06:25 PM

Hey peoples

I have a problem with my adminastrator rights on my computer
Thing is I am the admin but dont have any admin rights

It started less then a month ago, while i where installing some update
and installed avast virus protection. Everything seemed okey till I on
day noticed my rights are gone

So first of all i contacted Avast and asked at their forum, but all th
ppl there said to me

"avast can't change the user status in Windows... neither UAC state i
Vista"... and so on, so it must have been one of the updates since it
not avast

So I contacted Windows but they refered to the sellers, and so
contacted the sellers but they doesn't respond (2weeks ago). So i am no
asking some friendly ppl here if they know what i can do with m
problem

So for an example when I try to change, lets say, my account setting
on Vista (I only have 1 account... I know i know its stupid but this i
the case) a black popup screen arrives for less then a second. I manage
to look what it is called and got the name:

"C:\Windows\System32\consent.exe

this is an MSDOS file but i dont know what to do with it and why i
pops up

So if anyone could be kind and explain to me whats the problem is an
what i can do to get rid of it, I would be very greatful

Executing an image that requests administrative rights causes the
Application Information Service (also known as AIS, contained in
%SystemRoot%\System32\Appinfo.dll), which runs inside a Service Host process
(%SystemRoot%\System32\Svchost .exe), to launch Consent.exe
(%SystemRoot%\System32\Consent.exe).


From the information that you supplied, it seems that not only have you lost
Administrative powers but some System32 files may have been corrupted.


Your quickest remedy may be to reinstall Vista and rebuild a stable
environment.
