    Urgent Help


    Ive recently found out that im not admin of my own computer, i cant even access some of my very own files and cant change important settings such as windows automatic update and download some files, ive tried everything for example hidden admin and much more, i also cant even PRESS A BUTTON TO MAKE A NEW USER BECAUSE YOU NEED ADMIN RIGHTS FOR THAT!! this is so tiring and to make matters worse im running windows 8 and when i press"settings", "change pc settings" nothing happens, i believe this is due to me being nothing of high authority to my own computer. Please people, please help me.

    P.S Dont suggest anything like "Enable UAC" or create another user because when i click on it nothing happens.
