admin rights on 2003 server

I am the administrator of our server, I have a login id, I make myself a member of the admin group. Now, if I login as Administrator I can do anything, such as download and install programs when I am logged on a client pc, but if I log on, it will not let me install programmes etc, even though I am a member of the admin group!

Any ideas?

You need to add your domain account to the local administrator
Are you a member of the local admin group or Domain admin group ?

You need to add your useraccount as a member of the "Domain Administrators" group to have admin rights on the domain clients.
