UAC window opens off screen every time, can't update software
Posted on 2014-12-15
I have a customer with an odd problem. He's having some trouble with an app and we need to run regedit to fix the issue. But when we try to run regedit, as expected Win7 pops up the UAC window for approval. But every time it opens it is off screen. And of course UAC disables anything other than an approval in the UAC window.
None of the usual tricks to move a normal off-screen window will work.
I'd turn off UAC just long enough to fix his problem, but changing UAC settings pops up the same approval window, as usual, off-screen. Grrrrr...
Sooner or later I have to fix this permanently to install or update something!
Any thoughts? Is there a way to control where the UAC window opens?
System info: Dell Optiplex, Win7-64, plenty of ram and drive space.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
