If that is the case there is a Group Policy in force somewhere, which is also applying to the Administrator account and has the setting http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/gp/340.mspx?mfr=true enabled. You need to locate the policy and switch it off, or remove it from the scope of the Administrator account.
