Usually when I'm on the laptop for long sessions, 2 hours or more, the (UAC) User Account Control randomly gets reset. I have NO idea HOW or WHY the UAC gets reset. Often I run NIS, doing a FULL SCAN with the option to [Shut Down]. And let it run, unattended, for the duration of the FULL SCAN which often takes more than an hour. I think the UAC gets reset during this time because when I log back in the next day I often get the notification about the reset. 2. This week (AUG 4th) I have displayed the [Security essentials] screen [Firewall, Automatic updating, Malware protection, Other security settings], keep it displayed, so that I notice when the UAC resets. The change is displayed in RED. And Yes, I have set: [Yes, notify me and display the icon (recommended)]. 3. Over the past 4 months or so I've noticed on start-up, always, lots of CPU activity on Index/Indexing. I have my file SEARCH setting NOT to use the Index. Why would there be so much CPU on the Index at startup?? 4. Today AUG 09, I checked the [Security essentials] screen, no problem. A minute later I again checked [Security essentials] screen, and the problem (UAC reset) appeared. Half a minute later I get a notification of High CPU Activity. Clicked DETAILS, and the problem (high CPU) was SearchIndexer.exe . IF searchIndexer.exe is the problem (UAC reset) then how can I replace it? SearchIndexer.exe is found 5 times on the laptop. SearchIndexer.exe.mui is found 5 times on the laptop. 5. I immediately changed the password on my (Administrative) account. 6. Is there any way to TRACK which program may be resetting the UAC? Is there a Windows log that may be helpful in this case? 7. I assume there is a bug/Virus/Malware IN the laptop because the UAC resets WHILE I'm logged in. As opposed to coming IN from another IP Address?? 8. About 4 or 5 months ago my ATT Email got hacked. After a close look at ATT Email options I found Otherinbox had full control over my email account. This gives permission to third party service OtherInbox to: • Read, compose, move, and delete messages, folders, and filters • You will allow read and write access to your Yahoo! Contacts data • Obtain and update your status message. • Share your activities and manage the updates you receive. I quickly REMOVED this email option. 9. I look forward to any support/suggestions from your side to help resolve this problem.
