W7 x64 SP1 Programs requiring admin rights stop responding

2011-05-07, 21:06 PM

PC G560

Windows7 64bit with SP1 (happened before SP1 as well)

Hi

When logged in as a User if I click on anything which requires administrator priviledges, the box comes up to enter the admin password, it does not matter if I enter the correct password or if I click cancel the program then hangs with the circle icon spinning when I hold the cursor over the program. CTRL ALT + DEL and close the unresponsive program and all is OK again.

 

Any suggestions please

:smileyhappy: Solved it, without a full install. Thanks to another poor sole on this forum.

 

I trawled through pages of searches and the most common problem was with Lenovo PC's or certain applications, to say that Lenovo have such a small market share but so many problems really is annoying. a Yahoo search drew me back to this forum, uninstalling Veriface has resolved the issue, which is a shame as I actually liked the face recognition as the laptop is used by all of the family.

 

So far Lenovo have not impressed me-Wireless N rating is almost a fraudulent claim, low battery life, constant niggles like this one just solved, only real support is this forum the company support is crap. Touch pad is also diabolical.

For an offcast of IBM who I rate highly this is poor.

 

Anyway, hope this helps others out there.

could be virus or registry damage.

when you see lenovo logo at start-up, press f8 to load "last known good configuration".
( also, you can select safe mode to create new user as admin. )


if it doesn't work, back-up your files on volume c, shut down your computer, press one key recover button ( arrow sign ) and perform clean windows installation.

I don't mean to hijack anyone's thread but thought I would add my 2 cent. I am experiencing this same issue on a customers laptop, standard user accounts hang when they have to use UAC. I have gone through every step Microsoft offer on fixing catalog db issues (corrupt catroot catalogs etc) and no luck. last know good configuration didn't do anything either... Is there anything else to try before doing a clean installation? (yes I can back up everything for the customer but they REALLY don't want to do a clean install again)

Matt feel free the more info the better.

I have not got much installed, but really do not want to start again.

99.999% sure no virus. Had Free 3 month McAfee running now got paid Webroot essentials and nothing found.

 

My sons PC on Win7 32 bit is OK but the 64bit has been quirky so far.

as i said before, it'd be easier to perform clean windows installation and/or fix system files of windows if you can.

F8 will not access safe mode so I had to go in via msconfig.

 

I have 4 user accounts, none will accept the admin credentials password.

I have found other users with identical issues on Lenovo PC's and other makes. Unfortunately only a re-install is the solution I have found which is ridiculous for a PC which has had so little use.

 

When leaving the user a message of too many 16-bit progs is flashed and I cannot read any more of the message, again other users online have identical issues.

 

Some tech person should be able to narrow this down without installing window every tim

can you try to create new user account to check if the issue still persists?
