You can elevate that account to a "computer administrator" but only by logging on with the default "Administrator" account which is hidden in Windows normal mode. Boot the PC into Windows Safe Mode and the Administrator account will appear on the log-in screen. Click on it, go into User Accounts and change your usual account from Limited to Comp. Administrator.
Then reboot normally into your usual account.

this will explain how to boot into safe mode, so that you can give yourself administrator priviledges
using the F8 method as it does not have a system configuration utility.
1 - restart your computer.
2 - when the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. When that is completed it will start loading Windows.
3 - when you see the screen that has a black and white bar at the bottom stating "Starting Windows", tap the F8 key repeatedly until you get to the Windows 2000 Advanced Options Menu
4 - at this menu use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode option, which is usually the first in the list.
5 - press the enter key.
6 - your computer will continue booting, but now will boot into Safe Mode.
7 - do whatever tasks you require and when you are done reboot to boot back into normal mode.
if you have any problems please post back to this thread.
