  2. Windows 10 won´t start any program as Administrator

    Hello. I´m having this issue since installed one of the latest Windows 10 system updates.

    When I try to open any program that requires Administrator confirmation (that screen with the Yes/No question), this dialog won´t appear anymore. The screen background stays darkened and nothing happens.

    1. Using Windows 10 Home (x64)
    2. My microsoft user account is properly checked
    3. I´m the administrator of the PC
    4. Already tried do create another administrator user account - same problem, no success
    5. Cannot start any program/service that requires administrator authorization (not even regedit)
    Please help!

  3. No programs open unless run as administrator [Win10]

    Okay so today after I restarted my laptop (MSI Ge60) I left it for a while, and tried to open Word. Nothing happened. I tried to open Edge (app), it opened then closed instantly. I then tried every program/app I had, and the same thing occured. I restarted
    my laptop again and the same thing happened. I then tried opening google chrome manually, run as administrator, and it opened fine, but I can't open any other programs/apps without running as adminstrator.

    What causes this, and is there a way to fix without recovery etc?

    Thanks for the help,

    Jack.

    No programs open unless run as administrator [Win10]

    Hi Jack,

    Thank you for the update.

    Please follow the below steps for further troubleshooting.

    Step 1: Microsoft account troubleshooter.

    Please refer the below link to troubleshoot:

    http://download.microsoft.com/downl...B-A23B-5C3A6B5974E3/microsoftaccounts.diagcab

    If the issue persists, please follow the below steps.

    Step 2: DISM scan.

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) is a new command line tool that you can use to service a Windows image or prepare a Windows PE image. The DISM tool replaces the Package Manager (pkgmgr.exe), PEimg, and Intlcfg tools. DISM consolidates
    the functionality found in those three tools, as well as delivers new functionality to improve the experience of offline servicing.

    Please follow the given steps to run a DISM scan:

    1) Press Windows + x on your keyboard.

    2) Select Command prompt (Admin) to open Administrator Command prompt.

    3) In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press the Enter key after each command:

    dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth


    dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth


    Please let us know if the issue is resolved or you need any further assistance.
