Run as Administrator in XP

When verifying that I have Local Administrator rights in XP, if I check it by run "control userpasswords2" it appears that I have rights.  If I check it in the alternate method of Manage, Local Users and Groups, Administrators Properties, it appears I do NOT have administrator rights.  Any one know why?

Re: Run as Administrator in XP

When do the "control userpasswords2" command, does the screen show you just as an Administrator, or is more than one role listed (i.e.,"Administrator;Debugger User)? If more than one, then edit it to be just an Admin, log off, then log back on.
