  1. I'm an admin, but I don't have any permissions.


    Things on my computer have been really weird lately. It started with it not wanting to install programs because it couldn't get access to the file locations of where it wanted to install. Now, I can't even run .msi files or even basic .exe files without it telling me that I do not have permission.


    I'm an administrator, but I'm afraid that my permissions may be messed up. I don't know how to fix it, or if it even can be fixed. I have a lot of files on this computer and a lot of progress with video games saved on here; I can't reset it. If there's a way to set it so my computer will allow me and programs to do the things they normally do, please tell me and help me figure it out!


    Apps and actions that don't work:


    Using the Setup Wizard for any program

    Photoshop

    Origin Game client

    Steam Game client

    Epic Games Game client

    Illustrator

    Minecraft

    :)
