an only interact with the environment via Safe Mode..


have tried the registry hacks to play with UAC - but to no avail..


http://www.vistax64.com/system-security/279435-cannot-disable-uac-button-does-not-do-anything.html - but went hunting for the registry settings on microsoft.com for Win7...
SOME applications will run outside of safemode (not many) - was wondering if this was tied to .NET dependenices - tried to re-install .NET - but the installer wont run with this issue, and .NET wont install in Safe mode!
tried un-installing and installing apps - but that doesnt work in either Safe mode or normal mode
have tried using MSCONFIG  - and going for minimal boot - that made no impact
have tried trawling the registry to manually remove startup items and to inject my own... that didnt work
so now i'm lost for next steps.....
