Runas another user windows 7 not working

Im no longer able til use the "Runas" feature in my windows 7 pro installation.
When i try to use it i get an error saying "The specified service does not exist as an installed service"
Runas worked last week and there have been no major changes to the software.
Running system restore to a point where "runas" worked did not solved the problem.

Please advice on how to get runas "reinstalled" or running again - a reinstall the the OS is not a viable solution.....

Have you tried the other ways to use "Run As"? Detailed here:

Also it may be worth running an sfc/scannow to check windows files are intact

This could be a cirus issue.

Please ensure that you have a good anti-virus programme on the computer, update and full scan. Maybe use malwarebytes and run a scan.

I think you may need to run a repair installation on the OS or failing that use system restore to go back.

You may be looking then at possible user profile corruption or OS corruption.

Have you tried creating a new user profile, turning off UAC and al maybe running in safe mode.

If still no luck then maybe repair installation of OS (Not full reinstall)

Make sure UAC is turned on. Also make sure you never are logged on to a Windows PC with an account that has Admin rights. Only use a standard Account. If anything needs admin rights UAC will come up, which is a form of "runas". There are only very few cases where you actually have to be logged on with an Admin account, like updating Java runtime. But practically everything else will work fine through UAC.
