My situation and goal: I have a Asus Laptop which I upgraded from Win7 to Win10 a year ago. So far so good. My Account is since ever defined as administrator, but actually it can't proceed administrator tasks.
I want to delete driver files. The path is in the title of the question. My account is an administrator account but I can't delete files in this folder.
When I move files from folder A to folder B it happens that I have to confirm moving them or I have to give allowance to applications to install files. This experiences brought me to the point that I see something with the administrator rights is not correct. I assumed that my account has problems with the administrator rights and I have to fix these before I can delete the targeted files.
What I tried to solve the administrator issue:
I tried several ways to get administrator rights.
1) I tried to change account typ from standard to administrator. Not possible, because when I choose this option the button to accept the choice gets inactive. button gets inactive when I select administrator. And as you can see the account is defined as administrator, but is from type standard.
2) I activated an administrator account via cmd-window and "net user administrator /active:yes". It worked but this account is not able delete files which need administrator rights. It seems this account is an administrator account but has not the rights for it.
3) I tried to change the administrator rights for my standard account and administrator account in "Save mode" of windows. the same situation like in point 1.
4) By solving the administrator issue, I found out that my windows lakes functionalities. I wanted to take control over this problem by using the "Computer Manager", but the area where you can manage accounts and group is not existing. The local group policy window doesn't work. (see below in the comments the screenshots)
Something in the system is messed up. What is wrong or what else can I do to make it possible to control this kind of files in Windows 10?
