    Rig: Acer 64b Windows 10 desktop, i5-7400, 16Gb ram


    I downloaded the 'iCloud for Windows' from the Microsoft store. In the middle of the install I get this:

    I cannot install iCloud for Windows using my MS Admin user account.  Yet when I grant admin... 5007407d-a47d-4b94-bd1d-955ab761dc73?upload=true.gif

    After 90 minutes on the phone with Apple support we discovered this only happens under my Admin user. When I grant another user Admin, they then have a successful install. I experience the same issue on another desktop in our home. Apple recommended I contact Microsoft support to 'straighten out' my user account.



    Also discovered that iTunes is not listed in my programs list in control panel to 'Uninstall' yet when I type iTunes into the search it launches???

    System Admin Shenanigans?

    No problem chief its pretty simple to do but usually a multi stage process.

    Create an admin account using the control panel.

    Then log out and log into the new admin account so windows builds it.

    Then log back out and log into the super admin account your currently on.

    go into your user directory and copy all of your primary user folders copy everything [CTRL+A] and copy them via right click and copy.

    then go into your NEW user account and paste and allow overwrite of all the folders and files.

    after it is done log into the new account and make sure everything is working correctly. if it is go to your super admin user account folder and delete all of your private data pictures documents etc.

    then open up a command prompt as administrator and type the following

    net user Administrator /active:no

    and hit enter.
