Re: Administrator Rights Lost
This has happened surely because of any one or multiple updates. SO what you can do is you can simply uninstall those recently installed updated one by one until you get the problem fixed. In many cases when all programs refuse to open (like yours as of now), you also wont able to open user accounts in control panel. In such case you log out and log in with default Administrator account and uninstall the updates.
You can also do this by booting into Safe Mode.
