UAC settings do not stick

I work in there and a lot of our PC Windows 7 Prof SP1 32-bit are suddenly unable to have their user account control settings changed (they block to "never notify") and therefore, are not prompted for an administrator password when installing new software.  When I try to change this setting, sign in using my personal account admin, I can't change, but when restarted, the changes have not stuck. If the user tries to change, when you click on the control settings of user account 'change' the screen flashes and does nothing.

If I run a command line (my account has high as administrator rights)

NET user administrator / Active: Yes


NET user administrator *.


Restart the computer as the local administrator of the user, it says "user account is currently disabled and cannot be used to connect."

I ran the "fixit_kb978591.diagcab" and it has not detected any problem.

Thank YOU for any advice, go ahead!

  • Compatibility Mode settings do not stick

    We have an application that will not work in the current context of Winxp SP3. For this reason, we need to change the settings of the application compatibility runs in a previous OS and lower color mode.

    Unfortuantely, whenever we try to save the changes in the compat mode options, it seems that he has saved and no error doesn't pop up, but when we return to the file properties, options are gone and nothing was saved.

    This only seems to be for the application itself and all other files in the folder, in that it is. It's not a permissions issue, which it has been confirmed, but I'm not sure what other measures can be taken, or what else I can check. This question has me confused and quite irritated user at the time that it takes to solve.

  • Profile of Vista power settings do not stick

    I have a system with Vista Ultimate installed.  It has been working well since Vista came out, and in recent months, she has developed a strange problem.

    I have set up for the monitor in white after a period and then sleep after an hour.  I also configured NOT to require a password when returning from his sleep.  All this seems to work well.  After a few days, he starts to ask for the password again when it comes out of sleep.  When I check, the default values of food all were loaded again.

    I can set it up again and it seems to work, but in a few days, he's back to default values.

    I changed the power profile that I used to see something in the profile of power has been altered, but the same thing is happening now, after about a week with the new power profile.

  • My screen brightness settings do not stick after that I reboot my computer


    When I put my screen brightness for the "connected" by setting the parameter changes on the same level as the 'on battery' setting after I reload. How can I fix it?

    Thank you


    Hi Christi,

    Windows can store the brightness level of DC correctly in the brightness of the AC setting. When this happens, you can see that the screen is set to the brightness level set for the battery after you start in Windows 7. To resolve this problem, you will need to adjust the brightness of AC in power options plan. To do this follow the steps below:

    1. click on Start, click on Control Panel

    2. open hardware and audio

    3. Select the Power Options

    4 Select Change Plan settings

    5. under AC section adjust the Plan brightness to the desired level.

  • The appearance Palette opacity change does not stick

    It is obvious that by changing the settings in the appearance palette line & fill that describes all of the following agree - well, it's sort of working-e.g. eliminating lines altogether and also change the fill of a new color remains in effect I use then the pen tool, but any opacity change does not stick. I put 20% before using the pen tool, but whenever I use the pen tool, it is up to the 'default'. It forces me to, and then select the shape you want, this is the end to change the opacity, so I can see what I'm doing.

    Because everything is supposed to have the same opacity, it would be a great time saver to have my desired setting stay at 20% and will not return to the default value. I know that under SELECTION > OBJECT > ALL on THE SAME LAYER can change everything at once, but opacity lower as I work helps me build the forms correctly in the first place.

    Can someone tell me what the devil I'm doing wrong?

  • DefaultPSP change by PowerCLI/Host profile does not stick...

    5.0u2 ESXi

    $vH = get-Cluster 'Test ' | Get-VMHost 'Test1 '.

    However, after a reboot of the host, reset! If I SSH as ROOT and change the parameter it takes and rest!

    On a side note, the host NMP profile settings have the same behavior applies, it does not stick after reboot.

    Anyone know why this problem occurs, or how to fix so I can perform PSP checks and rehabilitation through PowerCLI instead of going to each host as Root to set adequate configs?

  • Help! Adjustments do not stick

    I'm having the same problem described in some previous discussions:

    Namely, when you use settings > curves, the changes appear in preview mode, but do not stick when I press OK.

    I use Photoshop CS3 Extended 10.0 on Windows 7.0.  I got some black and whites of two artists drawings.  They are TIFF, converted to CMYK/8, with a single background layer.  My aim is to blacken the black lines in the sections selected using the function of curves.

    I used successfully with images of the artist, but not an artist B curves, so I don't think it's a problem with my installation of Photoshop or my technique.  It must be something specific to artist files B.

    I tried a few suggestions in previous discussions:

    (1) delete the preferences file and let Photoshop create a new.  No change.

    (2) in view of the image at 100% rather than, say, 33.3%.  In fact, it's worse.  The changes are visible in the preview to 33.3% mode, but NOT 100%.

    (3) created a layer duplicated with CTRL-J and I tried curves on it.  No change.

    (4) double-clique on the background layer to create a layer of the 0 curves and I tried on it.  No change.

    A few curious points:

    * Curves preview mode shows the changes when I lighten the sections, but there is no noticeable change when I darken the sections.  Yet once again, the changes do not stick when I press OK.

    * I tried the brightness/contrast function to see what would happen.  Nothing.  The images do not change even in preview mode.

    But when I click on the use Legacy in brightness/contrast box, the function worked and the change stuck.  What does that mean?  That the files are saved in an older format version 10.0 cannot change?  I found a TIFF TIFF file.

    To solve this last point, I saved the file under a different name and tried curves on this file.  I tried both the above four suggestions.  Once again, the changes in the preview mode were visible at lower magnification, but not 100%.  The only difference is that, unlike before, darkening of the image produced significant changes.  But the changes have not yet stick when I pressed OK.

    These indices suggest that that is the problem and how to fix it?  I'm basically a novice in Photoshop, so I may have missed something obvious.  Thanks for any help you can provide.


    My aim is to blacken the black lines in the sections selected using the function of curves.

    If you meant"expand"when you wrote"darken" and the lines are pretty much pure black filter > other > Minimum might be an option. "

    Back to the question of the preview, maybe these screenshots may illustrate the problem.

    Real pixels, one can recognize that the image has only black and white pixels that won't suffer from these curves settings.

    In the small preview interpolation causes gray pixels that are affected.

  • All of a sudden I can't open attachments to emails. I get a message that the 'security settings' do not allow. Where are these settings and who put?

    I use TWC (Time Warner Cable) as my server e-mail and Firefox as my browser. I went to my emails and has attempted to open an attachment and got an error message stating "security settings prevent the download file. Well, I contacted TWC, Norton and my PC settings. It seems that Firefox is the problem! If I use another browser ie: Google and go to my email account, I have no problem. I remember recently that Firefox did a download of updates and this may be the cause of the problem.

  • Firefox only opens and indicates that the personal information settings do not exist or are not accessible

    Firefox does not open for me to make changes in order to correct the problem. The error box simply States that personal information settings do not exist or are inaccessible. This isn't a problem on this computeror I wouldn't be able to send this message.

    This is usually caused by a problem with the file profiles.ini and the profile marked as the default value = 1 is no longer present on the hard drive.

    • Windows: '% AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\ '.
    • Linux: ~/.mozilla/firefox/
    • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox /.
    • Remove the profiles.ini file to force Firefox to create a new default profile
    • Use the Profile Manager to create a new profile
    • "Select a file" allows to retrieve an existing profile, if there is always a present

    See also "create a profile":

    If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a profile in the new profile, but be careful not to copy files corrupted to avoid transporting on the problem.

  • Synaptics device settings are not not in the mouse properties


    I have a HP dm4t-1000 running Windows 7.  I just reformatted the HARD drive and tried to get the system up to-and-operational again.  Everything seems to work properly, with the exception of the touchpad.

    I rebooted, uninstalled and reinstalled the driver for the Synaptics touchpad about 20 times so far (several versions different too).  I can see the touchpad of my device manager (says it's working properly) and Windows Update and function of update driver in the device-> Manager Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad-> update driver software... say that the driver is up-to-date.  However, the touchpad still does not (at all), and when I try to change the settings of the Synaptics (Control Panel-> mouse) driver, I do NOT see a device settings tab.  Also, when I open the properties of the mouse (Control Panel-> mouse), I get the following error message:

    "Control Panel Extension is Incompatible with the Version of the driver"

    Here, I'm confused.  Device Manager indicates that my hardware is working properly, but my touchpad is completely non-functional.

    Any suggestions?

    If Synaptics settings does not appear under the mouse properties after completing the previous steps, try the following:

    1. Open Device Manager
    2. Find the device touchpad ("PS/2 Compatible Mouse")
    3. Right-click on the device, then click on "Update driver software"
    4. Choose "Browse my computer for driver software".
    5. Choose "Let Me pick from a list of drivers for devices on my computer.
    6. Nverifiez the option 'Show compatible hardware '.
    7. nder "Manufacturer", scroll down to "Synaptics".
    8. Under the 'model', the 17.0.19 driver should appear.
    9. Select the driver, and then click Next.
    10. Click 'Yes' to the 'pilot WARNING update"pop up.
