Just a query guys, I cannot optimise my "C" drive or use any tools on it because windows says I am not signed in as an administrator.

I have tried everything and even created an administrator only account separately but still get same message.

Any suggestions?

TIA

It could be a Windows 8.1 problem with defrag, check this link and try the solutions there: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... bb3?page=1

If you right click on a application shortcut, do you get the choice "Run as administrator"? Do that work? If it is a administrator rights problem, try these:

You can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free, see here
