No rights to install or run programs but am in Administrators Group

I have this problem on a couple machines. I have created a user and put them in the local administrators group. They still get error messages when trying to install printers/browsers/programs and whe they try to run programs like IIS or device manager.
The error says you need administrator rights to install or run the program. I have also disbaled UAC to test that out. No luck. What else can I do?

When you open Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts, does the account say Administrator?

also, i've tried run as admin for IIS and that also does not work. This is a fresh O/S install of Win 7, but I have the same issue with some older systems I have reimaged.

Is this a home computer or a work computer on a domain?
