Administrator Privileges - Catch 22 - AARGH!

I am trying to get the sidebar to work (I've never used Vista before). When I
try to activate the Sidebar, I am told that "Windows Sidebar is managed by
the System Administrator".

But I AM THE SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR! Indeed, I haven't installed any other
accounts on the system, as I'm the only user. What kind of mainframe
stalinist system is this????

Anybody who can help me please.

THANKS - SECOND PIECE OF ADVICE WAS AN INSTANT FIX.

Your time much appreciated, the Sidebar now works beautifully, and I love
(in a way) Vista again.
