you'd goto Start>Run> and type cmd

I don't know the command to make you administrator, but why don't you ask your son for the password? Also, I've never tried as a limited user but can you just create another account with Admin rights?

Oh I didn't think so. Well, my solution to you is - He is your son, can't you force him to give you the password or at least make him give you admin rights?
