I am not a pro... but always seek to learn more...Terrible hobby.......

I am a user, and my techs set me up as an administrator.....
I installed a tax software while logged into my server as myself.... i ran into issues.... was told that the program would not start because it could not access the " Common" folder of the software. It then told me the make sure i had rights to that folder. I then uninstalled it, and then reinstalled it while logged in as an administrator...  It works fine..
Should there have been any difference in the resultant use of the program and access right...

Are there different levels of administrator?   how can i check?
