Consent UI for administrative applications has stopped working.

It says: Consent UI for administrative applications has stopped working. I can't install/uninstall and therefore, cant run scans or antivirus...
I found the malware files as well, but then the same message appears. I already tried various solutions but they don't work..
Any Suggestions?

How can i remove virus


Removing viruses, though technical, is yet a very simple process if all the required steps are properly followed.
The basic steps are:
  • Buy or download a reliable antivirus software
  • Install the antivirus software
  • Update antivirus software with the latest virus definitions
  • Perform a complete system scan
Install an Antivirus Program in the System What is Antivirus program? An antivirus is a program that searches for, identifies and removes potential viruses existing in the computer system.
Antivirus software: Some of the most commonly and reliable antivirus programs available in the market are -
  • Symantec Norton antivirus
  • AVG antivirus
  • McAfee Scan
  • Microsoft Antivirus
The antivirus software should be updated regularly to retain its effectiveness.
Before installing the antivirus, close all open applications and terminate any suspicious processes using Task Manager. Sometimes, you may need to boot into safe mode or safe mode with command prompt to delete suspicious programs and references to them in the Windows Registry (run regedit from the command prompt to open the registry editor).
Search engines are excellent tools to find out whether a certain process is harmful or not. You can also get steps on how to remove a specific virus manually.
Removing the virus beforehand might be necessary, as some viruses will not allow an antivirus to operate. However, if you are not successful, you may still continue with the installation.

Scan the System to Identify and Locate the Virus Usually, the antivirus will run automatically when the system reboots after the installation. Therefore, it might identify the virus automatically. Moreover, you may want to run a quick system scan to locate the virus.
Troubleshooting the Virus Infected Areas After the antivirus identifies the infected areas, the next step is to rectify those areas.
Methods of Eliminating Viruses
Generally, the antivirus adopts one of two methods to eliminate the virus:
  • Removing the virus - When the virus can be easily identified and can be removed without affecting other files, then the antivirus removes it from the host place.
  • Quarantine - his is done when the virus cannot be easily identified removed from the file and the removal of virus means the removal of the complete file. In this method, although the virus is not eliminated, it is rendered inactive by moving the file into "quarantine" and renaming it.
Perform a Full System Scan Even after the virus is removed from the system, the next step is to scan the whole system to ensure that no infected files remain.

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.

    Windows vista home premium laptop gives me the following message.


    What program are you using to run the backup?
    This has to do with the user account control in vista, and there is a fix out there that recommends you disable UAC, which I don't think is such a hot idea. (links here, here and here) another informative article here.
    I suspect you could have a malware issue that is compromising your system. Please follow through with the first four steps of these malware removal protocols, then check things out and see if you can run a manual disk scan through to completion. If you're then experiencing the same behavior, let us know the results, and we can take it from there.

    I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
