I recently had a problem where my graphics driver decided not to install the update after it removed the working version, now I can't get any version to install. But, that's a different issue (maybe connected though). I just went through and did a full virus scan using pretty much every boot cd I have at hand, as well as malwarebytes (oh, and that's another issue to work on later) and superantispyware. None found any problems except the usual tracking webpages ... nothing major. Ok, so after rebooting after all of that, everything is running in Admin mode! I'm still logging in with my normal username and the Administrator account is still disabled. But if I go to open a cmd prompt I see that the command will run with elevated privs. I can't figure out why. Does anyone have any ideas?

Is this elevated privileges or elevated permissions?

Well, I might have fixed at least that part of the problem.  I ran tweaking.com AIO fixer and so far it looks like that issue may have been resolved. I still have the graphics driver problem and MalwareBytes, but I'll make separate posts for those and continue this one again if there's still a problem.

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

That's strange. I normally always have Speccy installed on all my machines but this time I had to re-install it. Oh well. Anyway, here's the screenshot:

Mentioning strange... your motherboard requires a discrete graphics card, but the Speccy doesn't show a graphics card.

 

Do you know what graphics card is installed?

Yes. It's the nVidia GTX 560. It was working just fine for quite awhile, then I decided to do the recommended upgrade to the later driver version and that's when that problem began. The driver always fails installing, no matter what I've tried. So far nVidia can't figure that out either.

Did you uninstall the Nvidia drivers before installing the new ones?

 

Before installing the new drivers you must uninstall the old ones.  Windows has a native graphics driver which will take the place of the Nvidia drivers while you install the new drivers.  

 

Depending on the version it will be necessary to uninstall the Graphics Driver last.  To be on the safe side I would suggest uninstalling the Graphics Driver last.

You should download the new drivers first, but don't install them until all of the old drivers are uninstalled.  To assure that you are downloading the correct drivers I would suggest using Nvidia's  Smart Scan.
