When I go to login to my Dell Inspiron One running Windows 7, my account is listed as administrator.
But when I go to: \Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts\Change Your Account Type\
it shows as a standard user. If I select Administrator, then [Change Account Type] immediately grays out.
Ironically, while on that same screen, it shows my userid as administrator at the top.
Also, I went to the "Computer Management" screen, and where I expect to see an item to manage user accounts, there is none.
I need to get my ability to be the administrator back.
ALSO - why did I notice this now? Because my wife was complaining about the machine, so I went to run "Spybot Search and Destroy", and it showed problems, which it will not let me remove since I am "not" the administrator.
