    In Control Panel it shows me as Administrator, but when I try to do a SFC scan, it says I am not authorized, must be Administrator, well, I am, any ideas how to fix this?

    right click on the command box and choose run as administrator

    the actual admin is hidden and disabled for security reasons your account is a user account with admin privileges
