I set up a Windows 2008 Server with the Administrator login, but it does not have full permissions

I set up a server/domain with Windows 2008 R2 Standard as Administrator, but now as I am trying to set up programs and move/delete files around and such, I keep running into "permission denied," and "you do not have access." In Active Directory, I am marked as Type "Users" and am a member of the Administrators group. I am not sure how to make this login a "real" administrator. I want it to be the Enterprise/Domain Admin with full-blown permissions.
