Who / what took your admin away?

With the small amount of information you are providing, you are making it very hard to help you.

Without more, complete information we can't help you at all.

Is this your home machine or a machine you use at work (and has been provided by them)? If it is a work machine, then they have the right to determine what kind of user accounts you can access on their computer. They also have the right to revert it back if you manage to change it. If this is the case, we cannot help you and you will need to speak to someone in your IT department instead.

It's mine :\

It all happened, when I opened an executable file, don't ask me for any details of this executable file cuz I've done everything to remove it(even in my head).

That's when things went wrong. I can't access Windows Security, Task Manager, Run as Admin, etc.

I tried running a scan with Kaspersky, but it takes yeeeeeaarrs to scan, I left it for a day it went from 0 - 8%??

So yeah, that's all.

Sounds like some form of malware. It's a pity you can't remember the name of that executable, as it may have given us some pointers as to the cause of your problem.

I'm going to ask one of our security experts to have a look - when she replies, follow her instructions to the letter.

While we're waiting for her expert advice, see if you can install and run a full scan with the malware scanner at the link below from safe mode and be sure to let us know how it sorts out.

If you find yourself spending days trying to get it resolved, I'd probably consider wiping the drive after backing up my data and then doing a clean install. That's always a last resort, but a clean fresh install takes me two hours...so it will lead me to a resolution faster than spending days hoping for one.
