Default Can't use programs, but i'm an admin

ok my friend asked me this...

"Here is the problem...i log in as administrater in windows (the only login name) but i seem to be getting messages saying u must be logged in as admin to get windows update as well as other things. I have the same problem with Norton ativirus. I can't enable it or the firewall because "I'm not admin" which i am. My servers won't run and this whole deal is pissing my off "

He has scanned with 4 anti-virus programs and nothing comes up he said. He just turned his pc on one day it was pulling this crap.
Anyways, I tried a few options with him but we couldn't get anywhere, figured i'd ask ya'll...
