As the topic states... For some strange reason all the UAC shield went poof on the desktop icons that used to have it. I did not mess around with UAC or any security stuff.

I do apologize if this is somewhat a no brainer question but I am new to all of this.

What other security software do you have installed on your system. Most often, if you have more than one they are both trying to control the computer and one ends up beating the other, or they both cancel each other out and don't work at all...

Avast Free
Comodo Firewall
Malwarebytes (Paid)
Windows Defender

My OS is 64 bit.

Whenever I run the program it still runs at admin or whatever settings it had even without the UAC shield on it.

Avast Free*
Comodo Firewall*
Malwarebytes (Paid)
Windows Defender*


Okay, the items I have bolded, and placed a star next to are anti-virs which are competeng to control your computer. Please uninstall one and keep the other. Sp, as you see, Avast and Comodo and Windows Defender are causing you some trouble since they are all installed. To be honest, I'd reccomend uninstalling all but Comodo Firewall and Malwarebytes.

I am just using the firewall of Comodo no AV and other stuff. I have been using this setup for 8 months now maybe something else cause the UAC shields to disappear? All the UAC rules for the programs still work it's just the shield that went poof.

No, like I said the software you have installed is conflicting. What worked 8 months ago won't work now, because AVs/Security software update. You need a new setup.

From a technical standpoint, your best bet is to only have Comodo and MalwareBytes installed on your system.

Windows Defender has a Real Time protection and Malwarebytes Pro has a real time protection so they are conflicting

Windows Defender - antimalware program

MBAM - antimalware program.

Only use one of these as a real-time scanner.

AVAST - Antivirus program. An antivirus program is necessary

Comodo Firewall - A firewall is also necessary.

And no, none of those security programs would cause UAC to misbehave as far as I know. That has some other cause; what I don't know.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic422586.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
