Administrator Privileges Win 7 64bit Home Premium (not working)

I'm the owner of the pc and only user and under user accounts Im the admin. Yet when I try to open a CBS log I get you do not have permission to open this file contact the admin? Iam the admin ;-) what gives?

It had always worked in the past. How would I reset the PC to Im the admin for everything again?

I do see on various other programs I can right click on and cal choose run as admin?
