admin problems

Im having trouble with administrator privileges as i am the admin and the only user but i cant get some games to work now especially SOE's launcher pad right now its saying i dont have enough insufficiant user privileges. I went to the .exe file and went to properties then told it to run as admin that worked for awhile but then it crashed. Im also having problems deleting old junk folders saying that i need permission.

Try taking a look at this post: Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

I had the same issue as you, and that's what solved it for me.
