UAC Hang
Whenever I try to run an application as an administrator under my normal user
account the computer hangs. I press "Runas administrator" and I get the
credential input screen with the rest of the screen greyed out. I use my
admin the credentials and press OK, the screen the stays greyed out and
nothing happens. The same thing happens when I just press the CANCEL button
under the credential input screen. Any solutions?

UP!

Hi all
Same problem here: when I am logged in as standard user andsome software needs my action due to UAC, I get the grey 'secure desktop' screen asking for my admin password. But when I enter that password, nothing happens. The credential prompt disappears and the grey screen stays there forever. I can only press ctrl+alt+del and then 'cancel' to get back to my normal desktop.
Also I tried deactivating the secure desktop, but even without that, the issue remains: the UAC kicks in and asks for my admin password, and after I enter it, the computer starts thinking forever with the little blue circle circling and circling.
Has anyone met this problem and found a solution? I have to say the UAC used to work perfectly well but this strange behaviour appeared after a number of software installs (and so can't tell which one caused this exactly).

RDemandt: did you find a solution yourself? Btw, would your computer be a HP? Mine is, and I wonder if this is not related to some of the HP software updates I installed on my computer...

Thanks all for your help!

UAC and HP Protect Tools Suite - Credential Manager incompatibility
well 'RDemandt' is apparently the name of the guy who posted the previous msg in this thread

Anyway, I got the solution: this is a HP-software related problem.
There is an incompatibility with 'Credential Manager', which is a component of the 'HP Protect Tools suite'. I deactivated Credential Manager through the Protect Tools Parameters panel, and the UAC is functioning normally again. Except that, of course, fingerprint login is now impossible since it is managed by Credential Manager...
