Rooting- and how do I know if the device is?

In trying to get Android reloaded- and the difficulty I am having- the mention had been made of ensuring the device is 'Rooted'

This I gather is the same as Administrator in M/S parlance or Sudo in Linux. When I switch on the device whilst holding down +Volume the screen presents with the Android icon prone and ready for operating upon.

The screen comes up and invites to load from external storage/device

Can I assume that is 'Rooted' and it is ready to go?

Live suite

Is a program that is run in a Windows computer to aid in this process.

It comes as a .rar files which is a zip file.

Unpacked it presents an .exe file which needs to be run in the Windows machine before connecting the tablet to proceed further.

Getting the file unpacked OK

But it will not ruin on XP Vista or Win 7- though it is rated to do so.

Any useful thoughts please
