Lost Admin Rights?

Its weird...im running 2000pro of course and lately it Seems ive been losing my adminstrative rights, for instance i cant move my icons on my desktop around anymore , nor put them in folders. I scanned for viruses, spyware, and i downloaded all the windows ugprades, and i went to users/passwords and ensured my adminstrator position, help please. Hm..basically the only problem i have is not being able to move icons period.
