Having problems with your Dell Vostro 200 PC Desktop ?

No administrative priviledges on a Dell Vostro with Vista O.S.

\015 I have a Dell Vostro 200 desktop computer given to me by a relative. The O.S. is Vista business. I ran the system restore disk that came with the machine, and named myself the system administrator. However, when I attempt to install software (I'm logged in as myself/administrator), Vista tells me I do not have authorization to perform this action and to contact my network administrator. How do I get past this block and get Vista to recognize me as the administrator? It may be helpful to know that when I boot the machine, it first goes to a screen that asks me which operating system I wish to use, and shows two instances of Vista to choose from. The machine is NOT on any network.\015
