Hey everyone, I inherited a computer from a friend who used to have restrictions over the most used account. I wanted to get rid of these restrictions and took a shortcut:
I promoted this account I'm using now to administrator then deleted the old account.
Now this administrator is having issues accessing certain things such as firewall.
I kinda thought this might happen because I remember a similar situation in my past, I guess I should have known better.
I'm hoping there is a quick fix to make this account full admin without going back to system restore and having to keep the old administrator.

Thanks for the help guys!:D
