    My computer does not recognize me as the administrator. When i check my User Account it list me as administrator. Is there somewhere else i need to check or change to allow my computer to let me do the things i need to do?

    what OS are you using?

    You can call your account "Administrator", but not be in the Administratior group.

    Just log in as the administrator. Then you can add or change any existing accounts.
