Running the latest version of Windows 8.1, all updated, on an HP i7 4th Gen Quad Core laptop with 16gb RAM and 1TB hard disk. I'm the Admin of my account. Every now and then, while installing a program (or every time I try to run a Command Prompt (Admin) after hitting Win-X), I will get a command window with a message which goes something like the following example: "SUCCESS: The file (or folder): “C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe now owned by the Administrators group. processed file: C: \Windows\system32\cmd.exe Successfully processed 1 files; Failed processing 0 files Press any key to continue . . ." (The above example is specifically from when I try to open a Command Prompt (Admin) after hitting Win-X. However a similar issue happens when I try to install some programs as well; the message might be somewhat slightly different, but essentially in the same vein.) I hit a key, the window closes, nothing happens. If I've been trying to install a program, I can generally get the program installed by going into compatibility mode, settings, and then fiddling around. But this is happening with pretty new versions of programs also, which should be ready for Windows 8.1. And it doesn't explain the Command Prompt (Admin) issue. Can anyone tell me what's going on? Thanks.
