Windows 10: I did something stupid

Discus and support I did something stupid in Windows 10 Ask Insider to solve the problem; I tried to add a password to any admin prompt by copying a text from the Internet. I thought that all I had to do was to change the "add" to "delete"... Discussion in 'Windows 10 Ask Insider' started by /u/PanemPlayz, Sep 21, 2020.

  1. I did something stupid


    I tried to add a password to any admin prompt by copying a text from the Internet. I thought that all I had to do was to change the "add" to "delete" and it would be gone. I tried many other words like rm, remove, usw.

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin" /t REG_DWORD /d "3" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "ConsentPromptBehaviorUser" /t REG_DWORD /d "3" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "EnableFullTrustStartupTasks" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "EnableInstallerDetection" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "EnableLUA" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "EnableSecureUIAPaths" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "EnableUwpStartupTasks" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "EnableUIADesktopToggle" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "EnableVirtualization" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "FilterAdministratorToken" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "PromptOnSecureDesktop" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

    Could anyone tell me how I am able to remove it (It is on a private computer, I just wanted to try it)

    im old and stupid

    You might be old, but stupid? I see no evidence for that.

    Run your app with Administrator permissions:

    • right-click on the app
    • select 'Run as administrator'
    • enter the password for an Administrator account when prompted.

    Windows 10 wifi not turning on Acer Aspire laptop

    In order to get the list of available wireless networks, you have to:

    1. Switch on Connect to suggested open hotspots (see the screenshot in question);
    2. Click on Wifi icon in the right corner. Now you have your networks back.

    After that the parameter from Step 1 can be turned off, networks will be listed normally after restarting Wifi.

    P.S. I feel rather stupid at the moment. I thought that open hotspots are passwordless hotspots and so are presumably not very safe. So of course I've turned that off during installation.
    Really hard to see any logic in this case.

  4. I did something stupid

    Cannot access shared network drive


    I could scream! so much time wasted on this stupid error, as if time is not precious enough!
    It probably would work fine if I could see the other computer! But I cannot see the other computer!
