Who Am I Really

there is no "run as administrator" in XP homeless and stand alone or workgroup XP-Pro systems doesn't require it if the user is in the administrators group

in XP homeless you can access "The Default Administrator" account only in safe mode
other users in the administrators group still don't have full access to do administrative tasks
eg. security tab on NTFS files / folders properties dialog only appears in "The Administrator" account in safe mode

here's a thought:

some malware infections set these types of restrictions
including but not limited to:
- parental controls
- disabling windows update
- blocking access to certain anti-virus / anti-malware etc. sites
- blocking downloads
- etc.

make sure your system is 100% clean
