    Hello Freitas, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Did you disable UAC by chance? If so, you'll need to enable it again.

    User Account Control (UAC) - Change Settings in Windows 8

    If not, then you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened may be able to fix it.

    Hope this helps for now,
