This could be something to do with the rights you have on that computer, do you know if UAC is turned on? (user account control) if so you may have been added as a standard user and not an administrator which has access to changing settings to do with the computer

If you go start>all programs>control panel> user account.

There should be a list of all the accounts for your computer and it will either say whether they are administrator or standard user, along there should be an option to create a new account presuming you have selected the administrator

I'm unsure what is being asked now, looking back at the orginal post i think it is simply the fact it is an admin only function.
