1networker4u, you needn't change the admin. Simply create a separate user account for you with full admin privileges That way, you can both do what you wish with no restrictions on either. All that'll change is that each of you will have to log on each time so the machine knows who's who.

There must be some reason why you weren't given admin rights.

If your account does not have admin rights you can not change this. Only a user logged in as an admin can do that.
