So, like a lot of people, I've upgraded to Windows 10. However, one annoying thing I've noticed is that there seem to be a lot of games that have some kind of issue with administrator rights. This seems to be a trend for a lot of games made in the period from around 2001 to 2006 or so, although it is far from affecting every single game. Examples of affected games include Football Manager 2005, Need for Speed Underground and ToCA Race Driver 3 - so it's not just one publisher or developer either. A couple of games have this issue fixed by installing official patches that came out years ago, but most of the time, this is not the case. Basically, when you go to run an affected game, you will get an error message that says "Access denied - Please login with administrator privileges and try again ". Forcing the game to run in said mode will result in nothing happening at all, and compatibility mode does not work either. Needless to say, this account is an administrator, and there are no other accounts on the system (which is the one in my system specs.) This issue has persisted from the initial upgrade install, to a clean install over the top of that installation, and a totally fresh installation on a wiped SSD. I believe I've also encountered this on my Windows 10 Home laptop. I've also tried creating other user accounts without success. Needless to say, I'm completely stumped at this point. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix this, and indeed, has anyone else experienced this?
