I'm getting this weird error when launching stuff related to the Microsoft Management Console (e.g. right click on my computer > manage)
Posted Image
I can still use the PC well with no problems though, its just slightly annoying to click ok in addition to all that consent prompts you get.
any ideas how to get rid of it?

I did have Norton installed once, but that was 2 (or was it 3?) hard drive re-formats ago so nope that's not the problem :huh:

Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista/7), type in:
sfc /scannow
Click OK (hold CTRL, and SHIFT, hit Enter in Vista/7).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy (with Vista/7, most likely, you won't need it).
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD (rarely in Vista/7 case).

Navigate to C:\Windows\AppPatch folder and rename AcLayers.dll to AcLayers.old

Then, copy AcLayers.dll file from C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-a..ence-mitigations-c5_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6001.18461_none_0be661abf27886c2 folder and paste it to C:\Windows\AppPatch folder

Restart computer. See, if it helped.

NOTE. You may need to perform the above in Safe Mode.

How do I open an elevated command prompt?

You will need to do the above in order for the below to work.

You will need to copy the file from the new folder to the appatch folder via this method:

copy AcLayers.dll AcLayers.old this will rename the AcLayers.dll file to AcLayers.old.

Then perform the aforementioned information in Broni's post above yours using the elevated command prompt. It will now allow you to do the above.

If you have Vista DVD...

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/88236-re...tall-vista.html

If you don't have Vista DVD...

1. Create Vista Recovery Disc.

Option 1:
http://www.c4consulting.com.au/soluctions/...0SOLUCTIONS.htm

Option 2:
Download Vista Recovery Disc iso image: http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vist...-disc-download/
Burn it to CD, or DVD: http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/G/Burning...+to+a+CD+or+DVD

2. Boot from created disk.
At first screen click on Repair your computer:
Posted Image
This will bring you to a new screen where the repair process will look for all Windows Vista installations on your computer. When done you will be presented with the System Recovery Options dialog box:
Posted Image
After this, it will present you with a list of options including startup repair, system restore and command prompt:
Posted Image

Select "command prompt".

At the command prompt type following in (due to a path name, it'll be painful, but try to be careful; you can't misspell anything); watch for "spaces":

copy C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-a..ence-mitigations-c5_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6001.18461_none_0be661abf27886c2\AcLayers.dll C:\Windows\AppPatch\AcLayers.dll

(you have 2 "spaces" above, before both "C:\")
Press Enter.

Restart computer and check for issues.
