    In device manager I have several devices with an ! inside a yellow triangle (Printer, Monitor, A few USB devices). I've tried updating drivers, But I get a message saying it can't be done because I don't have Admin Privileges. I've gone into my Account I it shows that I do. Mine is the only account on this pc.
    I had to re-install Windows 10 Pro the other day due to another now fixed issue, And I've had the Admin Privileges ever since.
    I hope someone can help asap.
    Thanks.

    I would like to ask a couple of questions, if you please:

    1. Your thread title said you have lost all your admin rights.
    But you also said " And I've had the Admin Privileges ever since."
    The 2 seem to be contradictory.
    Is that a typo ?

    2. When you were told you did not have admin right to update driver, was there also a box with 2 options .... Continue and Cancel ?

    3. Have you tried doing something else that requites admin rights to confirm that you have, in fact, lost ALL admin privileges ?
