Hello Ali!

Thanks for your question.

First check whether you are really administrator as an account type. do so following this: http://www.softwareok.com/?seite=faq-Windows-8&faq=85

If you are not then create a new user as described here http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-user-account#create-user-accou

and then change the account in an admin account as described in the first link above.

hope this helps!
All the best!
