Answers :

What operating system: XP or Vista?
You should be able to go into Control Panel and review what users have Administrative privileges. It is possible that you have a "hidden" admin account.
Left click on the Windows logo in the lower left corner
Left click on "Control Panel"
Double click on "Users" or "User Accounts"

There should be a list of names and user access privileges.

To change the privileges associated with names, you'll need to be logged on as an administrator. You might have to change the settings to show more log in names; or if Vista, select the little arrow next to the Padlock symbol on the power off screen and "switch user" to one of the administrator profiles.

It is good security practice to NOT always use an Administrator profile. Do maintenance as an administrator, but normal work as a Power User or other user. This reduces the likelihood of hackers or malware getting installed in your computer.
