No administrator rights with Windows 8.1/8 account

I notice that all accounts with administrator privileges are locked out after upgraded to Windows 8.1 and the rights isn’t as it did on Windows 7. Now I can’t uninstall any programs or do other takes like changin time or creating new users and get “Please contact your computer administrator for help” message. When I try to make the reset with wifi adapter, it shows error message “It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection maybe using one or more protocols that do not support Plug and play, or it may have been initiated by another user or the system account”. Re-installing the OS still get the same issues. How to fix no administrator rights on Windows 8.1/8 account?
