  1. Administrator privilege lost

    After 5 years as owner/single user of my W10 desktop, now I cannot access Device Manager. I get "This app has been blocked for your protection". Could a recent update have caused this?

    How can I reclaim my administrator's privileges?

    Administrative Privileges lost on my Windows 10 pc

    I returned from a business trip and I have lost all administrative privileges to my windows 10 p

    Not sure if it was hacked or the kids did it but all administrative privileges have been lost none the less.

    Step one, I reviewed all the information online on windows 8 and windows 10 similar situations.

    I tried them all, I have zero privileges to do any of them. I can not create a new account to add admin privileges to.

    I can not enable a hidden admin account to work with. I can not use command prompt to do anything related to admin privileges.

    I'm basically locked out of all programs dealing with administrative privileges. A app recently failed, and I had to download it again unfortunately, can download it without administrative privileges.

    Step two, accept that I can not do this alone and reach out to the community for help.

  3. lost administrative privilege

    Hi Ami,

    If I understood, you have delete your administrator account? Then you want to get the admin privilege you have lost, isn't it?

    I want you to try this command NETPLWIZ and tell me if you are able to create a new account with an administrator privilege. Follow this link to help you up,

    Normally because you lost the admin privilege you won't be able to create an account. If you do that does mean you have admin local account which can help to create your Microsoft account. Give me a feedback
