Windows 7: No C Drive Access except w/ default administrator

07 Mar 2014   #1

Win7 64 Bit
No C Drive Access except w/ default administrator

(Win 7 64 Bit) I downloaded malware through a Freeware PDFeditor. Cleaning was a pain and I had just backed up to an external recently so I ran a full restore. When finished all accounts were still showing as admin accounts but had no access to C:/. I was able to access through safe mode, but was not able to fix the issue. I enabled the default administrator account through the command prompt and now have admin rights over the laptop, but any admin user account I create does not have admin rights or access to C:/. Using the default enabled administrator account is OK but it leaves me without that saftey net in the future.

So question is, why when I create a new admin account, does it not have access to C:/ and no real admin control over the device. How do I fix this?
