Does anyone know why my user account doesnt have admin rights, despite being an admin account?

I'm unable to turn off processes using Spybot Search & Destory because I dont have admin rights.

How do I change this so that I can have the appropriate rights?

Also, I tried to create a user account name Administrator, and was told that the account already existed. The Administrator account isnt showing up in the login screen,though. How do I log onto this account?

Thanks in advance!
