Windows 10: Windows changed my user account and locked me out system files?
Windows changed my user account and locked me out system files?
Long story short; I install Windows clean, put my own name as admin; the only user.
I use, let's call it 'password_one' for clarity.
Fine. Then once I'm in Windows I login with my MS account (which is also my Gmail address) and give it 'password_two' as it is my MS account password.
Result: now my one and only user account is my MS account, my own name, but with my Gmail adress...and I have to login to Windows as well with my MS account password, 'password_two'.
So windows decided to change it for me? Just deleted the old password and switched to using my MS account one?
OK...so nevermind, everything works fine...except it doesn't!
I can't apparently install all programs because I HAVE NO RIGHTS to edit the system32 folder contents any longer. It just says 'you must login as administrator to do this' and when I click OK it just says 'access denied'.
But I'm still the ONLY user and the ONLY admin in Users - only not with the original password but which Windows changed there! There is NO way to login as anything else, and it won't accept my original 'password_two'
So...the plot deepends...I try to do ANYTHING in policy editor for instance I get this:
Namespace 'Microsoft.Policies.Sensors.WindowsLocationProvider' is already defined as the target namespace for another file in the store.
C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLP Adm.admx, line 5, colum 110.
How do I regain control of my PC??? What is going on here???
I changed the PC name and now I have no admin access so I am locked out of making any changes.
how can I change it back?
or am I hooped... :(

I think all the issues I am having with W10 are user account based. Under Users on the C: drive, I have two Users being shown. I have no idea how that happened. I tried to figure out which one Windows was using, which I thought I did and deleted the...
