Hi,

I have a Windows 7 Pro and every elevated program that I run is recognized as "Unknow Publisher", even all programs from Microsoft Windows.

 

This is a fresh install on top of a Windows XP. All Windows XP data went to Windows.old

 

There are examples of the "Unknow Publisher" messages:

- Start, Right click on Computer, Administer -> Unknow Publisher

- Start, type "cmd", right click on cmd.exe, Run as Administrator -> Unknow Publisher

- Control Panel, UAC setting, move slider and click OK -> Unknow Publisher

 

Should I re-install? This PC had memory errors too, I had to change the RAM after memtes86 returned errors

 

Many thanks

Oliver

To be honest...I would start by satisfying myself that the system has no RAM, hard drive or other component problems...before I even thought about trying to install an O/S.

 

Building structures on unsound foundations...does not normally result in builder-satisfaction.

Found the RAM issue after installing Win7. Now I ran combofix and found some \programdata\ntuser.pol will do some more testing

Found the cause after re-installing Windows and everything. After installing the SATA AHCI driver from intel, using the F6 .zip file with the drivers, the problem appears. So I rollback the driver update.

This is the driver causing the issue:

Will mark as solved. My solution was to use driver from Windows 7, not from Intel motherboard.
