Speaking of uac, it used to be possible to disable that. I don’t know if that’s still true with windows 10. It saves a lot of hassle. I suppose there are security implications of coarse.

Well the uac can be.
To be honest when I get a system like this I just do a reformat and load things myself and test, test, test.
Usually when I load my configs it doesn't do that.
If it does its bios, drivers or both.
The issue is when I have to deal with user software which gets in the way.
I can do it that way but it takes longer, and costs the client and myself more time.
I'd prefur to just reformat and reinstall windows and then I have an easier time.
Ofcause after that loading each bit of software at a time will eventually yeald the error.
9 times out of 10 at that stage its new or updated software.
And if it gets to that state I use google.
Sometimes a user needs a function and then just cracks software that needs it or installs malware full software to get it working.
At that point I just ask them for the function and then I can google that.
There is enough free opensource or low cost software that I either find the entire package or the modules I need and if I am lucky a wrapper front end to put them together.
The issue is then to convince the user to use said software.
I would to be honest ask the tech what stuff is on there.
ANd just get it reformatted and ask to get its hardware tested the unit cleaned, sure its going to cost a bit but you have already got it in the shop and are generating costs so get it done.
I have just had a system revived that stopped working the entire os crashed, the system died.
Regreasing the syncs, clearing the dust and replacing the power supply and all small fans and its up.

I have this new machine and it has NVDA on it. But in Vda does not load at start up. We are having some problems with the machine, and my husband thought he had narrowed it down to stuff screwing up when you restart rather than shutting down the machine. Anyway, with NVDA not loaded when the machine is shutting down, occasionally will hang up and e speak will start talking. That is not the synthesizer I have selected. But it does talk. And it is happened on a few occasions. When he took it back to the store to let the tech look at it, it did that once, and now the tech is blaming the whole thing on NVDA. I’m sure that’s not correct, but I don’t know what to tell them.
