Windows 8 - While trying to correct a privileges problem for normal users to my C: drive (at the root) I removed Administrators by mistake, and of course when I try to add back administrator privileges, it will not allow me to.

Windows 8 still allows me to start the command prompt with Admin Rights.

But when I used the file explorer UI and try to set administrators to have full control, it will not allow me to select any options.
