A Windows 7 error does not let its users turn off the computer

For those who do not read the obituary, Windows 7 still goes around on their computers, although now with a problem that could definitely send the operating system to hell.

This is because several users have reported that they are having serious problems shutting down and restarting their computers, since a pop-up window indicates the following:

"You don't have permission to shut down this computer."

Windows 7 error

The error that does not have a known cause at the moment, has caused the same users to look for ways to fix the problem.

Therefore, the Zdnet site published three temporary solutions and an unofficial solution for this annoying problem.

What to do with Windows 7 error

The first solution:

  • Step 1: Close the current account session by pressing the Windows key + L.
  • Step 2: Use the red button in the lower right corner of the screen to turn off or restart the computer.

Second momentary solution:

  • Step 1: Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE several times to enter the Task Manager page.
  • Step 2: Use the red button in the lower right corner of the screen to turn off or restart the computer.

Third temporary solution:

  • Step 1: create another administrator account.
  • Step 2: Log in to that account (or another administrator account that was already in the system).
  • Step 3: Log in to the default administrator account again.
  • Step 4: Turn off or restart normally.

Unofficial solution proposed by hardware and software communities in Reddit:

  • Step 1: Press Windows + R to open the Run window.
  • Step 2: Type gpedit.mscy and press Enter.
  • Step 3: In the Group Policy Editor window, go to: Computer Settings> Windows Settings> Security Settings> Local Policies> Security Options.
  • Step 4: in the right panel of the option Security options, find and double-click on "User account control: run all administrators in administrator approval mode".
  • Step 5: In the new window, select Enable.
  • Step 6: Reopen the window, but this time type "gpupdate / force" and press Enter. This updates all group policies.
  • Step 7: Restart or shut down your system normally.

If none of this works, change the operating system now.
