Exit one or more programs, and then try again." few days ago I got malware on my computer and it messed up something with permissions so i wasnt able to lauch sfc since then (it starts and goes off right away) and it fails with typing in Run "regsvr32 jscript.dll", regsvr32 vbscript.dll, "scrrun.dll". so I tried:

    "These steps might help some else with a similar UAC/ACL complete root
    "Access Denied" issues to the point where even if you are logged into your
    Admin account it still doesn't let you create accounts or modify any
    important settings/permissions etc.
