guest and not the administrator. I cannot figure out how to change this.

Which XP OS?
Home or Pro?

Can you logon as "administrator"? (likely no password)
(If Home - boot to Safe Mode.. If Pro, Press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice at the
welcome screen.)

Hi

Are you logged as a Guest or is your Account configured as a Guest? I don't
know that their is a way to convert your Account from one with Guest
privileges to one with Aministraotr privileges

Reboot and at the Welcome screen press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice and access Windows
as the Administrator. Then create a new Account for yourself with
Administrator privileges.
