I'm having trouble deciphering who gets the prompt and who doesn't....but one of you probably has UAC on and the other has it set to the lowest settings...or off.

User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Is this one computer with two accounts, or are you comparing two computers...one is yours and one is your friends?

When he gets the machine, he'll have to set himself up as Administrator. Apparently you are the Administrator right now.
