XP cannot run msconfig as administrator

I am trying to eliminate some of the icons in the system tray using msconfig. I am automatically logged in as administrator, but when I remove some of the icons and hit save I get the message not logged in as administrator.

    Check your administrator Rights

    Boot into safe mode

    Go to Start, then Run, and type in

    control userpasswords2

    and press Enter.

    In the dialog that appears, you can either add an account or check the
    properties of an account. Clicking on the Properties box will give you
    another window. There will be a tab that says Group Membership. On that tab
    you can click Other, and in the drop down box will be all sorts of account
    choices - Administrator included.

    You can also go through Control Panel...Administrative Tools...Computer
    Management to achieve the same effect.
