You might want to try logging on to this computer using the LOCAL administrator account and put the user who uses this computer normally in the powerusers group. See if it works then.

this box is not on the network at all.....if the local admin pass is unknown, then it is doomed, right?

It's a common problem: people not knowing the administrator password.
