The Windows 7 operating system was officially decommissioned last month after an extension of support. In theory, only users who paid for the ESU (Extended Security Update) service will be able to continue patching in the future. However, Windows 7 is still full of bugs. After Microsoft pushed KB4539602 to solve the black screen problem caused by stretching wallpapers, complaints about the computer’s inability to shut down began to appear online.
Some Windows 7 users tried to shut down or restart from the start menu when they encountered an error prompt that said “You don’t have permission to shut down this computer”.
At present, we have explored two sets of solutions, one is to create a new administrator account, log in and then switch to the original administrator account, shutdown and restart is normal.
Another solution is cumbersome but once and for all, run Group Policy (gpedit.msc), go to computer configuration-Windows settings-security-local-policy-security options, search for “User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode (User Account Control) “and double-click to enable the policy.
