I have been experimenting with security options on m my Windows 10 and moved all Microsoft root certificates from trusted into untrusted position. Not sure if that was the problem but my admin privilege is lost. I am still logged in as an administrator but my access to everything "denied by administrator". I cannot access Registry, cannot install apps, cannot access Task Manager, cannot reset the PC.

Can anybody help to reset everything to default please?

  • Are you able to restart and access Safe Mode? Nov 7, 2023 at 22:58
  • Yes, I accessed in safe mode and created a new admin account. The new account has all admin privileges. Will work for now. Thanks for your consideration. Nov 8, 2023 at 21:14
