  • Hi Wshear Sorani,

    According to your description, I think you ever adjusted User Account Control settings.

    Please go to search box and type UAC, select change user account control settings, if you have chosen Never notify, change it into other option, I suggest to choose Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer.

    Also, we can run Process monitor to see if there is any access denied error when double click to open exe file. Get this tools from here.

    Meanwhile, if you use a program frequently, you could tick Run this program as an administrator in Compatibility tab, like this picture below.

    Hope my clarification is clear.

  • Hi Sorani,

    You are welcome, you mean that you formatted your machine and reinstall system?

    If so, scenario seemed really odd. From our experience, current issue should be linked to UAC, as we know, hardware issue doesn’t influence permission, so I think it shouldn’t be caused by hardware issue.

    Best regards,

    Teemo Tang
