Permissions acting up on Win10

New build and a fresh install of WIN10:


- I can't make any changes inside Program Files. I can install programs though.

- I can't open Office unless I run them as admin.

- I can't add or edit registry keys. Trying to take ownership in regedit results in 'access is denied'.

- I can't open screen saver settings, no permissions.


I'm logged in as admin for all of these. What's up? I tried sfc scannow, and DISM. They didn't find problems.


I did lose power at the very first wupdate, while it told me not to cut power.

Pretty sure you're going to have to reinstall.
