I had the same problem with my Vista (consent.exe was running in my
system but when i right click on task manager, it prompts me to click on
the link to enable it to run as administrator). But, I manage to
discover a trojan which was the main culprit to this issue.
You may want to install AVG Anti virus available online. it is FREE
(recommended, but you can always use other anti-viruses which can scan
Link to download:
Once you run AVG, it will detect "Trojan horse Generic 15.ASHK" running
in your C:User\.....\Roaming\sdra64.exe
When AVG has successfully removed this trojan from your system, you
will not see consent.exe in task manager anymore.
Hope this helps.
