You login as the Administrator and Right-Click My Computer then Select Manage. Go to the users find you name and add your self to the administrator group.

this should help...

P.S. Yes this should be put into an NT forum because this computer is probably still a Domain Controller. You do not want to use a Domain Controller as a Workstation. You need to to use dcpromo to demote this computer.

ace, I don't see where the OP states that this is a PDC....

To the OP, can you contact the person you bought the computer from? If it were me, I'd just reformat and reload a compatible OS.
