Administrator rights missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I was wondering why I couldn't eg. change my internet fra public to private, and a lot of other functions. They weren't even visible - even though I have an administrator account. So I decided to create another account, and gave it administrator rights. I realised that all the functions which wasn't visible for me on the original account, was visible on the other administrator account. Now I have the option to move all my files etc. to the new administrator account, or try to fix the issue with my original administrator account.

    I was wondering if someone has seen this issue before, and if there is a solution, where I don't have move everything to the new account.

  • Hi loloak,

    It seems that the present user account has been corrupted. Some third party software or improper operation may result in this. It should be a coincident issue. If the "System Restore" option is available, we could try to recover the machine to a previous normal point or we have to fix present user account.
    Here is a link for reference of fixing corrupted user profile.

    • Open Command Prompt and select Run as administrator there.
    • Accept the UAC prompt.
    • Enter the following command to enable the hidden administrator account: net user administrator /active:yes
