"Access denied - ask your administrator"

Can anyone tell me what is sensible about the PC denying me permission to do some things when I am its sole owner and user?

It's to protect the pc from unauthorised changes.Go to Control Panel, User accounts and give yourself permission, but if you don't know what you're doing leave it be.
