Go to the welcome screen, press ctrl+alt+delete twice, with all accounts logged out fully, and type in "administrator" in the box that shows up. Then from there make a new account with administrator permissions from there, and see if the new account is glitched. If it does work, then move all your personal files and settings from the first account to the new account, and then delete the first one.
