    UAC and c:// out on laptop


    Suddenly, UAC on Win 10 laptop is not working, can't turn on bit defender either. Can't even access C:/ directly. i use my personal gsuites basic with windows. But also my franchise HQ has GSuites enterprise, and seems to assert control over my PC through it, and thru Windows and Google through the fact that they own my domain . How do I re-enable UAC and secure this PC?? ANY suggestions are appreciated. Kind regards,

    :)

    • Click on Change User account control settings.
    • Provide password for the UAC prompt.
