    Default Escalate privileges not working?

    Hello, I had access to my VM windows 7 sp1 by using Backtrack5 r1 efs_easychatserver_username payload through armitage.

    However i wanted to escalate my privileges to system level but when i launch the command it i get this error on the victims machine

    Im not sure why it would shut down that processor.

    I'd appreciate any help

    Check to see how metasploit elevates privileges in Windows after which check to see if your victim is patched against them.

    I imagine this fails due to UAC. There is an excellent post exploitation script in metasploit which can probably help you out. look into post/windows/escalate/bypassuac. After you initially gain access with the easy chat server exploit you can background that session and run the bypassuac script. once that runs a new session will be opened with user account control disabled and you should be able to escalate your privileges.
