Sure, that's how I was able to compare them. And yes I can make changes there as well

You appear to be using the built in Admin account instead of your own user account elevated to admin?

I'm not expert on this so I'm just asking the question.
Now that I can't tell you. Only that as I showed in that grab what I am able to see is in that administrator folder not in the Windows or windows system folder. Or anything on C:. And even in that folder as you can see many aspects of that are inaccessible.

Anyway it looks to me like you'd have to logon to the hidden admin account and see if you can get access that way but wait for confirmation from Pyprohly before trying that. Like I said - I'm not too sure.

As far as I can work out lar-pc is your computer name as should be shown in Control Panel> System> Advanced System Settings> Computer Name.

User name is "Administrator" which is the account used to log on.

Not sure what this Lar-PC.001 is about.

Malwarebytes vs. IObit fiasco comes to a close
Last month the interwebz was jolted by Malwarebytes' claims of IObit stealing their intellectual property and using it in IObit Security 360.
