I assume you have Vista. This is indeed supposed to be in the folder you specified. If this file is missing, other may be too. If you have the Vista Installation CD or DVD, boot with it. You be prompted with a repair option that allows you to either perform a system restore to an earlier, and hopefully intact point by date, or you can run a repair install that will restore the operation and file but may lead to some loss of personal information and necessitate re-installation of some programs. Try the System Restore first.

Remember you must boot the CD/DVD to get this.

Good Luck!

Consent UI for administrative applications has stopped working


Consent.exe is part of Windows Vista UAC (user access control). If you are having problems, try going back to a restore point and see if you can add/remove programs. If you don't have a restore point where you can do that, then you will have to use the recovery CD which will require the admin password. If you didn't set a password, it could be blank, just try pressing Enter.

Access violation at address 0052D602


Sorry If this doesnt help your problem but here is some info that might help


"
Consent.exe is part of Windows Vista - it's the User Access Control (UAC) executable.

There is a known malware version of this executable. Do a search on your hard drive (within Windows Vista, obviously) for all consent.exe files - make sure you include hidden and system files in the search criteria.

Once the search has completed, right-click on each file and check the file properties.

There is a MalWare version of Consent.exe
Right Click ALL of the ones you find and look for
Microsoft details in Properties

  • File Names Used: 3
  • Paths Used: 8
  • Common File Name: CONSENT.EXE
  • Common Path: ?:\windows.old\windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-lua_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.5728.16387_none_ef1113b929fe5371\
  • Vendor Information: Microsoft Corporation
  • Product Information: Consent UI for administrative applications
  • Version Information: 6.0.5728.16387
  • CONSENT.EXE may use 3 or more path and file names, these are the most common:
  • 1 :%windir%\winsxs\backup\X86_MICROSOFT-WINDOWS-LUA_31....A1C2
  • 2 :?:\windows.old\windows\winsxs\backup\X86_MICROSOFT-WINDOWS-LUA_31....A1C2
  • 3 :?:\X86_MICROSOFT-WINDOWS-LUA_31....A1C2

  • If you find a consent.exe anywhere else in the search results, I'd delete that file. Run a thorough anti-virus scan of the harddrive. I'd also download spybot and run it as well as downloading Ad-Aware from Lavasoft and using it to scan as well.

    Spybot and Ad-Aware can find different spyware/malware, which is why I recommend running both products.

    Once you've done all that, reboot the system. That should fix the problem.

    THERE ARE NUMBER OF METHODS BUT FOR YOU THESE 2 METHODS ARE GOOD

    1) METHOD:-

    Delete wgatray.exe from c:\Windows\System32\dllcache.
    2.6) Launch RegEdit.
    2.7) Browse the following key HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWSNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify.
    2.8) Delete The Folder "WgaLogon" and all of its component.
    2.9 ) Reboot System.

    3.0) BE HAPPY NOW.... AND NEVER EVER INSTALL WINDOWS GENUINE ADVANTAGE NOTIFICATION IN WINDOWS UPDATE OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO REPEAT THE DAMN PROCESS AGAIN.

    IN ORDER TO THAT FOLLOW THIS

    START
    --> CONTROL PANEL--> AUTOMATIC UPDATES --> CHOOSE THE OPTION """"""""""""Notify me but don't automatically download or install them"""""""""""

    When u use this option whenver your system detects any new WINDOWS UPDATE choose the updates which u want to install... DONT INSTALL WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK --3.

    Need administrator level control over 'new' (ex-network) computer


    Windows 98 does not have the same concept of "administrator level control' as later Windows versions, so it is more likely that this computer has some form of 'lockdown' software or configuration, especially if it was previously a school computer. There is a wide variety of ways to lockdown a computer, from policies in the registries to core modifications, so your best bet will be to locate a set of Windows 98SE disks, online or elsewhere, and reformat and install fresh. Without them, you will need considerable DOS and registry knowledge, or a friend or consultant with same.

    If you want to try, start the computer in Safe Mode, and run msconfig.exe, and disable most executable stuff in system.ini, win.ini, config.sys, and autoexec.bat. Then run regedit.exe, and locate the policy keys, and remove them, an admittedly very simplistic summary of steps. But they may have deleted and replaced too much of the core, for this to have a chance of working. You really need someone with considerable DOS and Win98 experience, or just reinstall Win98.
