Computer says I'm not administrator but I am
Posted 10 July 2012 - 04:41 AM
There's a number of things under the control panel with a shield thing next to them and I can't click any of them due to needing administrator rights.
How can I become the administrator? I can't even click change account type.

Now my laptop has suddenly decided I'm the administrator as well. I've had this months, it hasn't been restored or anything and I haven't changed any settings. This is Windows 7 (32 bit).
Both Acer computers.
With my laptop I had the administrator problem on a file I just created on Photoshop. Thought maybe it was just that. However, I went to delete a couple of folders that I don't want on the laptop and it came up with the administrator problem again.

Arrow down to PsychPosse's response and follow instructions to add the Administrator account.

Same goes for my laptop, although I'm still confused as to why it suddenly decided today I no longer had permission.
