Can't open apps which ask for admin access.

This morning I tried to update my driver (Geforce GTX 780M), I tried doing this through their application (GEFORCE Experience). Shortly before the end of the update it crashed. This is when the horrors begin.

Before I get into it, I would like to precise I am on a mac runnig bootcamp, windows 8. Therefore I am not a windows expert and this is probably what created the problem in the first place.

So after it crashed I looked through my files, as i could see something weird was happening. I tried running an app and it quickly give the blue loading icon but then crashes or doesn't even open. i do not get any system message indicating what is wrong. So I assumed the driver was incorrectly installed as it crashed. So looking through my file I found a newer driver was installed and that this was probably creating the problem. My old driver (or version of GEFORCE which still was on my computer). I deleted the new broke version hoping this would fix my problem but i clearly hasn't. Additionally I tried looking into my User account control preferences, I did this because i realized programs like google chrome were still working. So maybe this is an issue with admin access as most apps i can't open ask for admin access. The problem is everything seems fine in the user account preferences ! Any help is greatly appreciated ! Thank you very much have a nice evening or day !

RECAP: Driver or Other problem ? Don't hesitate to ask for any unclear or ungivin information !

In your start menu open control panel and then user accounts and choose 'change your account type' then click the box or circle against 'administrator'. That should sort it out.
