chii07chobits: No, I don't know why. There are two things to try, either separately, but together is fine too.
1. Boot up in Safe mode
2. As an administrator, check the Security permissions of

You should see Full Control.
Also you should see that the Owner of:
ntuser.dat is Administrators, and of
ntuser.dat.log (a hidden file) is your logon-id.
