The UAC message is asking for administrator approval to run this program. In this case it was cmd.exe you were running, and I assume you were trying to run it as an administrator.When I try to edit or add anything on my Windows 8.1, this message pops up and I can't delete anything. Any help is welcome
My local hive looks like this, don't have ex "C"
You cannot open the SAM while you are booted into the same Windows that you are trying to do the work on.Hope you can see this picture.
I've logged in on safe mode, but now it says SAM is already being used so I can't open it.
I've always used the user account. just never got round to changing the name. Never had any problems for over 3 years until recently.Was this an OEM computer that was already set up with an administrator account named "User" by chance?
