Hello,

Starting with Vista, even administrator accounts are restricted.  Certain commands in shell are restricted unless you specifically run the shell as Administrator.  To do so, find the shortcut to Command Prompt in the start menu, right click on it and select Run As Administrator.

For picture and document access, you may have to right-click on their respective directories and change the security permissions so that you can access them with your admin account.

See here for a helpful toturial on changing permissions:
