    Windows 10 Pro does not recognize Administrator Account


    I am logged in to Windows 10 Pro as an Administrator. The operating system refuses to allow me to unzip an executable file to a folder on my C Drive failing because an Administrator account is required. It does not give me the option to provide my password to authorize the process. This problem surfaced when I did the free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 late last year. Any help would be appreciated. I found search results info suggesting that an embedded manifest embedded in the file may be involved. I can't find a folder where I am allowed to unzip the file.

    I found a location where the file can be saved without an error message. It is the Download Folder.
