    Lost administrator rights after update creator

    I am not happy with the creators update. I have a local administrator account and now all in a sudden my administrator rights are fully curbed. I had to install a built in second administrator account to have them back.
    This is very annoying. Once this build in account installed it also keeps you from turning back to the old configuration. A dirty trick really!
    Is there a way to get local adminstrator rights back?

    In fact I first updated before the automatic update came. On this occasion I added the built in administrator account first and found out from there on there was no return. The system also became very slow.As a precaution I made a true image back-up prior to this adventure so that's how I could undo the whole thing first. But a week ago the automatic update was announced on my screen. I supposed the bugs were gone and I installed again. Except the video drivers (amd) everything seemed ok. Normal speed but the administrator rights still gone.
    I am now on version 15063.413 just like you.
    So still puzzled.
