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.

    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.
