Can't write to my C drive in Windows 10

I have noticed since I bought my Windows 10 laptop, I can't store any files on  it - even though I have Admin privileges. Trying to resolve it with Google suggestions, I set my slider in the User Account area to minimum (all the way down) which didn't resolve anything. My next suggestion was to set a specific register key from 1 to 0 and reboot, I did, and it now allows me privileges to write to C, however, when I attempt to access the internet by clicking on the e icon, I'm told I can't access this app under the Admin account and to choose another account - which I don't want to do.

Suggestions, anyone?  All I want is for things to work normal as in Windows 7 or 8 i.e. access to my C drive and have all my other apps work!
