Ok, well there are two types of User Accounts, Computer Administrator and Limited. Here's what I need you to do: Open up "My Computer", click "Control Panel", then I need you to click "User Accounts". From there locate your user account, and tell me what account type does it say underneath it, it will either say "Computer Administrator" or "Limited".

If his name is Administrator he is by default the Admin. If you are having access problems then you could suspect a virus.

We still need to know for a fact, so that we can move onto the next step.

Ok, well you do have the top level Administrator User Account, and I bet thats bug when it says you're not the Administrator, so I wouldn't worry about that. So, thats just Windows for you. As long as everything works fine then you should be good to go. Do you need any help with anything else?
