Everyone always has good ideas so I am hoping someone recognizes this problem.
I have my computer set up with an Admin account and a User account. Normally, if I installed software through my user account, I would be prompted with the UAC dialog box and asked for my Admin password. I don't mind as I understand it is better for safe computing.
About a month ago, after entering the UAC Admin password, it just hung. No big deal, I logged into the Admin account and installed it there. But after a few more of those situations, I realize that I have a bigger problem in that the User Account seems to be corrupted or disabled or something as it freezes WHENEVER the UAC Admin password is requested.
I don't want to try to use the system restore feature as I have installed/un-installed too many things and it may not have enough history to get me back to that stage.
I have tried to search here and on the Internet and have not found any similar situations.
My last resort is to delete the User account and create a new one, but I was hoping someone would have a fix before I resorted to that drastic measure.
Anybody have an ideas?
