Does not mean you are logged in on an admin account.
You may be on a user account that is NOT an admin account.
Go start, control panel, User accounts.
To open the User Accounts tool, open Control Panel from the Start menu, and then double click User Accounts.
IS YOUR ACCOUNT an admin acount
If not see this and next time log in on an admin account
A simple check is to right click the clock on the taskbar and click adjust time and date.
If you cannot you are not on an admin account.

Sign in with that new admin account.
