Well I'll be...I tried to change one of the settings in Vista and it denied
me access saying that only the Admin can make changes...I am the
Administrator...Anyway of correcting this, so I can have full control of
adjusting my settings?

I had the same probem and this helped me:

Vista Administrator account: accessing


right click on "computer" and click on manage.
click on "local users and groups", click on "users", click on
"administrator" and right click, click on properties. toggle the box marked
"account is disabled". this should clear this box. now close all windows.
in control panel click on "administrative tools", now click on "local
security policy". Local Policies/Security Options in :interactive logon:"
enable "Do not display last
last user name"

In Vista the Administrator account is the only one really that I have been
able to tell that really has full access. the get to some places you just
have to run apps as Administrator. But at least you will be able to get into
the account when you need to.

I am running VISTA Home Premium and have encountered the following: I have
installed a couple of different programs and have later decided to remove
them from Control-Panel "add/remove programs", Even though I am the
administrator (no one else uses this computer), I get a pop up which tells
me they cannot be removed, "See your system administrator" - I AM THE SYSTEM
ADMINISTRATOR! Any help would be appreciated.

Is this where Right Mouse Click on the command or menu item and
selecting Run as Administrator does its thing?

There should be a screen somewhere that asks you to sign in as the
Administer, so try doing that before you do anything else...it might help.

just installed vista home premium
it says im administrator but when i got to do anything it says im not
administrator
eg while trying to install from a disk i get this
'You are not currently logged into your computer as administrator. This
installer requires that the user be logged in as an administrator. Please log
out and log back in as administrator, and then restart the installer'
allso when i download something and try putting it on another drive it wont
let me as i have no administrator rights
this happened with only one account on computer ie: no other users

Many others have encountered this problem. The problem is that many XP
programs need administrator rights to run, and their programming does not
make Vista ask to verify as an administrator. In Vista, like linux,
administrator accounts are basic users until they are "admined up". To run a
program that does not properly prompt for administrative rights, right click
on it and select "Run as Administrator"
