If your account is designated "Computer Administrator" that's has high as you can go. It's the equivalent of the default Windows "Administrator" account in terms of what you are allowed to do.

To my knowledge there are no varying levels of administrator. You either have a 'Computer Administrator' account (same as 'Administrator' account) or a 'Limited' account. There is no other type that I'm aware of.
