  1. Restricted Admin Privileges even though I AM THE ADMIN


    Okay, I have encountered this issue before and I am quite literally annoyed with Windows now. I own the computer so yes it's a personal computer and I am the sole admin/user of said computer.

    So this is nothing new but Windows has this weird lock on the Admin position regardless if you own it or not. It's a programming error where even if you are marked as an Admin it doesn't work I would assume


    Anyway, I was trying to help out a friend in trying the Quick Assist App provided by Windows. It came back with the following.


    C:/windows/system32/quickassist.exe

    A referral was returned from the server.

    1. So then I tried running as administrator same code.
    2. Went into the application and changed all security setting to allow all access. Same code.
    3. I found out to get onto the hidden administrator tried to run it again. Same code.
    4. I tried fixing the Registry and Group Policy on the Hidden Administrator. Same Code.
    5. I effectively turned off/hidden the hidden administrator. Still the same error code.
    6. I tried fixing the Registry and Group Policy on my sole Administrator Account. Still the same error code.
    7. Followed this guy's YouTube video. https://youtu.be/G-SGne2JuLw Still the same error code.


    Before you ask yes I restarted the comp several times to try and restart the system after each step but still no go.
    So now what can I do to fix this? Better question what can I do to make sure I never encounter this issue ever again?


    Also, if anybody from Windows sees this. Please pass the word along that this is a consistent issue that many users have. So please fix the messed up programing so your users don't have a hard time using your product.

    :)
