Running administrator account but cannot change certain features.

  1. I was using the "Windows XP Services Tweak Guide" in the OS Resources section of your website.

    I followed the instructions in the guide and modified the services using the services utility.

    I restarted my computer. When I logged on, I was greeted with a message saying that I had modified my services and that I could revert back to using the default services or continue with my modified ones.

    I clicked ok to continue and got the message that the changes couldn't be made because I was not on an admin account. I am however using the only account on the desktop and have checked to make sure it is an admin account many times.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The Administrator here should reply to this but use
    Sight Feedback.

    Go to Start Menu,Settings,Control Panel,Users accounts.
    It's all there to configure.
    Take your Users control back.

    I've done this. I have an admin account, yet I still get the same message.
