    Well, yours is the first and so far only report we've heard of an account moving from standard to administrator. Did you change it back to a standard account?

    No i didn't. It happend on its own, i noticed it, when i booted pc. I use runasrob to rub programs as admin and they didn't launch, because if runasrob is launched on administrator account, it has nothing to do and programs don't launch, that's written in pop out window.
    This woudn't surprise me, windows is bugged, i experienced it multiple times, settings changed in applications etc. - all of the sudden.
    It is whatever, i don't even mind at this point, to many buggs i coudn't do anything else than solving buggs whole day...

    I meant link on this page, Halt hackers: do those tricks still work with Windows 10? Because account type doesn't change abritraility, unless it is bug, or virus maybe, i download games from interent, but nothing new recently and i had couple detections 7x 1/11 and like 1x 3/11 detected from av engines, probably false positive. I had these a while and nothing changed, one day i start up pc and account changed to normal.
