All of my programs will not open using a double left mouse click. If I right click and run as administrator, it will then work. Some of my programs/applications do not have a run as administrator option, therefore preventing me from using it at all. When changing to a different user (standard user account), this problem doesn't happen. I turned my UAC off but then once restarting the computer and trying again, it won't even open with the run as administrator command. Does anyone know what the problem could be and how I go about resolving this? It's becoming quite annoying.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

You could have a corrupted user account.

 

Have you tried creating another administrator account?

Hi dc, 

 

It appears you could be right. I've changed the created user account to an administrator and it opens everything fine.

You could leave it this way and just create another non-administrator user account.

I think that's what I will do. I'll just have to move some of my files over to the other account. A pain in the rear end, but if it gets rid of the problem I'll have no choice.

 

Thanks for your help.  :thumbup2:
