    Administrator Rights Problem when Running Apps

    I've been using Windows 10 for a few days now and everything was fine with admin rights: I could do whatever I wanted on the computer as an admin, and occasionally got UAC prompts when it was warranted.

    However, yesterday I signed in with my Microsoft account for the first time, and now every app demands administrator rights: for example, when I launch HDD Guardian, it tells me: "Missed administrator rights! Some functions are not available and some data could be inaccurate." Similar problems happen with other benign apps like AIMP, etc.

    I understand that for security, to do some things I need to run the app as an administrator, but this should not apply to all apps all the time, and indeed it wasn't the case before yesterday. Please help.
