Unable to open UAC control dialog

    I want to emphasize again that I'm not looking to enable/disable UAC, I can do that using the reg files provided in the tutorial in this forum (Brink's post). I can also do it manually via the registry. What I'm trying to fix is the issue by which when I click on "Change UAC control settings", the UAC slider dialog menu does not appear.

    The command is accepted and executed without errors, but UAC dialog does not open.
    Rats, I was hoping it would open that way.

    Check Event Viewer, see if there is anything being logged there that would give us a clue.

    All I can suggest is to try a Refresh. Will leave your data and some apps and programs alone but many will have to be reinstalled.

    See here: Refresh Windows 8

    Thanks Ztrucker, yes, seems that my faulty RAM stick caused corruption. Right now my system, aside from these errors, is stable and running fine, but whenever I find some time I will fresh install Windows again, it's a better solution than a Windows refresh.

    Fresh (Clean) install is always a better option for sure.

    Good luck.
