You were using the talking installer at that time. That is running
as though it were a portable version of NVDA. When UAC comes up,
portable NVDA won't read the message. It may say something like
secure desktop. Answer y because according to your description, the
UAC prompt has come up.

hear anything about UAC nor a yes or no question. Maybe an alt y
at the time of lockup will do it. I'll give it a try.

Escape only closes UAC and doesn't allow the action it is asking
about. Alt y when the UAC prompt comes up and you want to
answer yes. Escape or alt n when you want to answer no.
I think it is a very bad idea to disable a security feature such
as UAC when it isn't necessary.

Started by removing the NVDA that was on there; might have
been version 19.2. Now tried to install the latest; 22.1.
Get to the point of "continue button and it says "secure
desktop" and locks up. I press escape and it says "NVDA
I tried to find where I could turn off that "secure desktop"
But I couldn't find it. Now I don't have NVDA on there and I
have to use a portable version on a USB thumb drive.
Ideas anyone? Thanks.
