I am an Administrator. This is Windows 8.1 Professional.
regedit - permission denied
task manager - permission denied
admin cmd net stop - permission denied
services.msc - permission denied
msconfig - does nothing
Attempting to disable Windows Defender through Windows Defender GUI - doesn't disable Windows Defender - it is still running in backgroung
And no I am not interested in reasons to keep it running in the background. I want my administrative rights back.
