  2. How do I log in as the "real" administrator?

    First, storing dat in the root of "C" is dangerous and limited. You should NEVER store anything there. There are only a limited number of files/folders that can be stored in root

    Is your user an administrator? (you can check in the user control panel>> win key +"X">control panel>user control panel) It will say administrator under your name

    If you are an administrator you can "take ownership" of the files by the below. WARNING do not take ownership of the entire drive or you will break things

    What are these files 1bccc6a55feb06465f27253b879caa54_f820ab25-4d51-4e20-97d5-18f9cfca120f

    These files are, in fact, owned by TrustedInstaller. I can change the ownership one file at a time but there are 490 of them. They are located in the C:\ root directory so I can't change the ownership of drive C because it wants to change every file
    in the drive. Is there any way to change the ownership of these files as a group?
