Try it logged into a different account.
What do you mean with systems default Administrator account?
Just for my curiosity ;-)
The built in "Administrator" account. You can be logged in as an Administrator, but you can't be using the "Administrator" account and have Protected Mode on, it will not work.
You must be using a created account that can have Administrator status but is not THE Administrator account called 'Administrator.' Protection Mode in IE8 will not work under that mode due to UAC not in use while under that account.
I am guessing he is under the "Administrator" account itself which is why it will never work.
