  2. UAC not allowing software activation

    Once again the so called support engineer did not even read the entire thread before posting yet another solution that did not do any good.

    However, I was able to solve my situation without your help after all. My original question was how do I turn off UAC. the method suggested in this thread only turns the notifications for UAC off not the UAC itself. In order to turn off UAC completely,
    I went into the registry and turned it off there. After doing this, everything installed perfectly.

    Here is a link to read about turning off UAC:

    DISCLAMER: Making edits to the registry is EXTREMELY dangerous and could cause damage to your computer. Consult a trained professional with any questions.

    How to turn off the User Control Prompt for apps already allowed?

    Unfortunately this can't be done.

    There is an alternative - or more accurately, a very different - approach you could take, and that is to use a white listing program such as SecureAplus (which runs alongside any existing AV).

    Only programs (exe's and dll's) in the white list can run- anything else is challenged.

    However, UAC remains an issue, as some thing don't work if you turn UAC off so as not to get any UAC prompts.

    - see approaches below esp. Winaero Tweaker to automatically create elevated prompt.

    UAC not allowing software activation

    Hello Lourenco,

    Thank you for keeping us posted on the status of the issue.

    We appreciate the time and effort you have put in to resolve the issue. I would like to assist you further from here.

    As an initial recommendation, I would suggest you to check if the User Account you are logged in is the Administrator account or not. Follow the below steps.

    • Press the Windows key and R from the keyboard to open the Run Command Dialog Box.
    • Enter netplwiz to open the
      Advanced User Accounts Control Panel which lists all the users accounts created on a computer.
    However, if you are the administrator, I would suggest you to disable the User Account Control. Follow the below steps and check with the results.

    • Type in UAC in the Search Bar and select Change User Account Control Settings.
    • Under User Account Control settings, drag the slider down to Don't notify me when I make changes to the Windows settings.
    • Reboot your computer before the changes take effect.
    UAC Turn Off Disclaimer:

    User Account Control (UAC) can help you prevent unauthorized changes to your computer. It works by prompting you for permission when a task requires administrative rights, such as installing software or changing settings that affect other users. We
    don't recommend turning User Account Control off. If you do turn it off, you should turn it back on as soon as possible.

    Additionally, I would also suggest you to enable the
    built in administrator account and check if it helps you through the process of the
    Power DVD product activation.

    You need to run the command from an elevated command prompt. To do that you need to do the following:

    • Press the Windows key t+ R from the keyboard to open the Run Command Dialog Box
    • Enter cmd and right-click on the Command Prompt result that should appear.
    • This opens a list of options at the bottom. Select Run as administrator there.
    • Accept the UAC prompt
    • Enter the following command to enable the hidden administrator account:
      net user administrator /active:yes

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further information feel free to write to us and we woud be happy to help you.

    Thank You.
