I'm not able to open an elevated command prompt in Windows 7 Ultimate. Previously I was able to open such a command prompt in one of the following ways:

  • Start > type "cmd" then hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter
  • Start > type "cmd" then right click "cmd" and select Run as Administrator.

However when I try this now I only get a normal command prompt without administrator rights.

Any ideas what could be wrong, and how I could fix it?
