  • Question

  • Hello,

    Every time I try to run any program or any administrator tool that needs admin rights I get an error " The specified procedure could not be found." I cannot install or uninstall any programs or give some programs that I need write access to my hard drive. this started happening a few days ago and I havn't changed anything in the computer for months


    I'm using windows vista home premium.

  • Hi,

     

    Have you tried creating/using another administrative username? Do you get the error after the UAC consent dialog or before?

  • Hi I have the same problem as chubbs4482 and I did not create another user acct. However, I realise that I cannot even run the "Turn user account control on or off" from the control panel. Nothing happens when I click on it. I cannot also run any windows update and when I tried running it after downloading the files, the same error message appears.
