User Account Control - (disabled/transparent Yes button)

Q: User Account Control - (disabled/transparent Yes button)

Hello, I'm having problems with my father's little net-book, he has Windows 7 Starter and he is a Standard User and he don't have no administrators on his net-book.
The User Account message pops-up when everytime clicks on something like "Run as Administrator" or "Windows Calculator" that he was going to run, the the "Yes" button is not visible and it's disabled, do you know what the problem is?

The image below is the problem that he has on my farther's net-book, now...



Thanks!

Preferred Solution: User Account Control - (disabled/transparent Yes button)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: User Account Control - (disabled/transparent Yes button)

The UAC Prompt I believe can only be accepted by a user with Administrative Privileges, a Standard user will be lacking these Administrative Privileges.

The thing which worries me, is why the Windows Calculator is creating a UAC Prompt? What AV do you have installed? Have you made any scans?

I just noticed the Yes Button has been greyed out when I try to install a program. Anyway of fixing this? I'm on Windows 8.1 with Bing. Thanks.

A:User Account Control Yes button grayed out.

I take it from the reference to 'Bing' that you are using Internet Explorer, Microsoft's browser. Which permission box are you referring to ?
 
When downloading software with IE you get a box like a ribbon at the bottom of the screen asking 'Do you wish to run, save or cancel ?'. When you actually go to install software you get the UAC panel pop-up, which looks like this -

Can you clarify which of these is giving the problem ?

I inherited a Dell XP420 Computer with Vista Operating System from my stepson Pat who could never figure out the machine.

I seem to have many problems with Vista revolving around User Account Control, Privileges, Permissions, Ownership, user names, file control and directory structure. etc.

I?ve been working around UAC problems, but there has to be a way out of this. My most recent issue:

IE has problems fully loading web pages. With IE, like several programs that I run with this computer I get messages that say I have corrupt files. I get object error warnings Chkdsk does not fix problems.

While shopping for a new car battery, with many pages open, the computer completely hung up last night. I had to kill power and reboot.

IE7 did not work, I Unloaded and IE7 would not work also. Google Chrome is fine, I have internet access. I reset all defaults.

After hours of messing around, I discovered the way to start IE is ?Run as Administrator?
Then like so many other programs I run, I get the screen Windows screen

When I dumped my old files on this XP420 computer from my old computer, They resided in User ?Mike_W_old.? I had no permissions with this user, so I moved all the files to ?Pat?

Hi,
In our company, there are few computers where we can access only limited user accounts. I went to control panel >> user accounts >>...it shows the only limited user account name like "xyz". It doesn't show us any administrator account names, why is it so? And how I can make it happen in my personal computer?

A:xp shows only limited account name in user account control panel

Because you are logged in as a Limited User, so you can't make changes to the computer. Speak with your Network Administrator at your company.
At the log in screen hit CTRL+ALT+DEL 3 times fast. This will give you the traditional Windows Log In Screen. If you have the Built In Administrator accounts password, you can log in as Administrator and create a new Admin user account.

How come the UAC is set to the lowest setting for the admin, but for a standard user it is still set as default (requiring admin password)?

A:User Account Control for standard user.

Built in admin bypasses UAC, hence the setting. Any other users (even users created as admin) get UAC prompts.

This is one of the many reasons security best practices dictate creating a second admin account and disabling the built in one.

My friend has toshiba laptop, running Windows 7 Home. The OS has one user account that is password protected. She turned her laptop on to find two accounts, one as administrator and the other one as 'Other User' - her own account was not visible. When she tried to click into the 'administrator' account, it tells her that her account has been disabled - contact system admin. The other account asks for a user name and password. What has happened here? She is unaware of anything specific that she had done for this to happen...

Have had this machine over a year, 3 weeks ago, I started getting a random message that my account has been disabled, contact system admin.

Well, that's me! started in safe mode, enabled the administrator account (no password) then tried to login as Administrator....SAME MESSAGE!

Rebooted a couple of times, was able to finally login as my user account: GENE (who is an admin as well)

Double checked security profile to ensure *something* hadn't set that - nope.

I then used the system restore DVD to do a restore anyways...

Things have been fine for about 2 weeks, but then this morning..same thing.
Tried to login as user GENE (an admin account) received the message, your account is locked out and to contact system admin.. After enabling Administrator through safe mode command line, I rebooted into Administrator fine. When I go to the Control Panel, user GENE is not there, however the user profile exists AND the files are there under c:\users\gene\

So I got a new desktop computer, and a User account was already set up for me. So when I got it I did some software installing, anti virus, malwarebytes, windows updates. Had to do some restarts for the Windows updates and all is still well. Then added a password to my user account, and had some more Windows updates, although some weren't critical ones, just recommended. The pc needed to restart again, so I restart. Now when I turn on my pc, Windows will load and show a screen that says "Your account has been disabled. Please contact your system administrator." I click Ok underneath it and it goes to a log in screen with two options. First is Administrator. It requires a password. It's not the one I set up. The second option is Other User. That one I can click, type in my user account name and password and that works. So I can get into my computer ok. But I would really like to get rid of that Account has been disabled message and make it so only my User account shows up at the log in screen. I thought about trying a system restore to a time before it started happening. Would that get rid of Windows updates, if that is the cause? Any other suggestions?

Hi,

I have many people using my computer and I want to stop them from being on my account. What I mean by this is,that I want to set up an account for everyone else to use with the following control:

1. I (as an administrator) get to control password creation, account pictures and all personal settings. THEY HAVE NO CONTROL OVER BEING ABLE TO CHANGE WHAT I HAVE SET.

2. My library, computer and data files are unseen by the other account. This means they can not edit my documents, open my music. THEY BASICALLY WILL OPEN THE USER ACCOUNT AND SEE NON OF MY FILES.

3. I (as an administrator) control what they surf on the net. e.g. adult content.

I know some of this seems like 'mission impossible' but please can you help me. I am sick of feeling like I don't control my own computer any more.

As for point 2, I would like to elaborate. My biggest concern is that my documents keeps on appearing in the documents section of the user account that I tried to create. Even though I have tried everything to stop this, nothing has seemed to work.

PRINT 2 -- I could not get this print screen to upload so I will describe it. In the print screen it is the same as the PRINT 1 but there is a 'Public Documents' file and the file includes all my personal files.

Thank You,

A:How do i control a user account?

What you are wanting to do is very simple. Type in the Windows search box " user " and then choose User Accounts, from here you can create a new account for the other users and choose standard user account for them. I would make just 1 user account and let all the others use that unless you want that everyone has their own account.

To secure your files from others you can either edit the user accounts permissions but if you are not familar with that then I recommand either first reading up on it or you can simply make a folder private by right clicking on it and chosing to not share the folder.

Heya folks.I am using Windows 7 Pro.I've noticed that a fair number of games and programs elicit a response from User Access Control every time they launch. Generally this makes for a slight annoyance; I simply click "yes, I do want this program to launch." However, I have come across programs that actually crash because of the UAC interruption. The only UAC controls I have found set the level of interference (no help there) or turn it off completely (fixes the problem but leaves my system without UAC enabled and requires a reboot). I have also tried "run as administrator" in compatibility mode, no help there. Is there a way to create a list of trusted programs for UAC? If not: assuming I know what programs I am launching, what are the security ramifications of running Windows 7 with UAC disabled?

I regularly get fed up with the User Account Control intrusiveness, but I do not want to do away with its good work. It does not appear for every application or .exe file I run, just some. So - is there a master list somewhere of 'acceptable' applications it will allow me to run with no question, and that I can edit?

Merely to use the slider to reduce the level of intereference is not what I want as I would still like to be asked with executables that I have not approved.

Is there a way to do this, or am I misunderstanding what it does?

A:User Account Control

Hello Jcaswell,

Sorry, but there's not a way to add an exception list for UAC. That would defeat the whole purpose of UAC asking for your permission to allow something to run elevated first. For example, if you added a program's exe file to an exception list and that exe file became infected by malware or a virus, then that malware would be able to run elevated without your knowledge since there was no UAC prompt to ask you first.

http://www.winsupersite.com/faq/windows_7.asp

User Account Control improvements. Windows Vista's most reviled feature is being completely overhauled to be more customizable. Four settings will be available:

1. Never notify (least secure). The user is not notified when a program tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is not notified when they make changes to Windows settings or when programs try to do so.

2. Only notify me when programs try to make changes to my computer. The user is not notified when a program tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is not notified when they make changes to Windows settings. However, the user is notified when programs try to make changes to the computer, including Windows settings.

3. Always notify me. The user is notified when a program tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is also notified when they make changes to Windows settings or when programs try to do so.

4. Always notify me and wait for my response (most secure). The user is notified when a program tries to install software or make changes to the computer. The user is also notified when they make changes to Windows settings or when programs try to do so.

We tried everything, and left it with SP2 installed, but suggested he gets Windows 7.

So today he has it, and we try to upgrade but keep getting the UAC screens with a greyed out OK box.

There is 1 (standard) user account, we cannot edit the registry or MSconfig as UAC kicks in or a fail to write to the registry error.

We cannot upgrade as it asks the UAC question - we cannot run the setup file as administrator as the account isn't one and any other hidden account is exactly that, hidden.

The only solutions I see say to use the Windows Vista disc (it was pre-installed so that's a no-go)

Safe mode - nothing useful in user accounts, cannot get into Manage by right clicking computer.

Cannot add an account, as no option to do so; cannot delete the account.

cannot access the internet as wireless needs a setting changing and UAC stops it again.

That is the only administrator account and I switched the administrator to that account August 13th. I don't know what to do. I don't have a password reset disk or a Vista disk. Please help!

Hi. This morning I rebooted my computer, and when I tried to log on, my personal Admin account was gone, and I could only sign in to "Administrator". I need to get onto my old profile, however, when I try, it says, "Your user account has been disabled." I need a way to enable that account. I am on Windows XP, and I have administrator privileges.

On Microsoft's site it says I need "user manager", but I can't find it! I really need your help!!

Have you tried to enable your user account from control panel->user accounts logged in as Administrator?
