I have already tried to go to a restore point but this has not resolved the problem.
Expert:  Martin replied 1 year ago.
Sure, just give me a little more info on the matter then.What OS are you running?What did you block SystemSettingsBroker.exe with?Have you tried system restore from safe mode instead of normal mode?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Windows 10.A pop up came up saying that SystemSettingsBroker.exe was trying to run and did I wish to allow it and I clicked no.I haven't tried system restore from safe mode but would rather resolve it without a restore if possible as I wouldn't want to lose other changes.

The message you saw is from UAC (User Access Control) - you most likely downloaded something and tried to run it, which required administrative permissions and you denied it from running with admin privileges.It doesn't mean you cannot try running it again - UAC asks you each time if you want to allow it or not.Unless you disabled it with Norton, McAfee, or any other anti virus that has a firewall.There's no need to run a system restore for this, what were you trying to do originally?

Sussed it! It was Panda Anti-virus that was denying access. All good now.Many thanks
