    Windows took admin rights from me


    Well basically every single thing i want to open as admin i cant, the uac box appears and asks for a password of "Administrator" account, which i dont remember creating. Maybe thats the "hidden" administrator account but im not sure. If there's anyone who could help, i would be thankful.

    :)

    admin rights keep disappearing!?!!

    Hi guys,

    I am actually having a problem at work that our IT department hasn't been able to figure out. I am supposed to be a member of the admin group. We are on a domain. The problem is that everytime I reboot the computer I loose my admin rights(no longer in the administrator group) and just become a normal user again. I have tried googling this and didn't get to many results.
    I believe IT is just giving me local admin rights, not admin rights for the whole domain.

    Any suggestions?

    EDIT: It is on Windows XP Pro.

    Windows 10 Admin rights?

    I am becoming increasingly frustrated with windows 10, for some unexplained reason the photos app stopped working, the suggestion is to uninstall and reinstall this app, however the system reports that I do not have admin rights to perform this operation!

    I wonder who does, I log into windows as an administrator and could do anything, this is a new problem since upgrading to windows 10 on my single user personal laptop.

    I did find a community post showing the following instructions:

    I request you to follow the below steps and disable in built admin account on the computer.



    • Open Command Prompt in Admin mode.
    • Copy and paste the below command and press Enter.
    net user administrator /active:no

    3.Close the elevated command prompt.

    4.The built-in Administrator will now be available to select to sign into.

    However all I get for my trouble is access denied error 5

    So where do we go from here?

    I am 66 already and cannot wait forever to sort this please help Windows took admin rights from me ;)
