Try running SSMS as an administrator to see if the message goes away.

Edit:  My thought is an issue with it not passing an admin token.

Are you sure you added your user to the sysadmin group when you first installed sql server?  Also, did you, by chance, install sql server in mixed mode authentication and have the sa password to get in and interrogate the permissions?  The only other option is to backdoor your way into SQL server in order to interrogate the permissions and/or add another user (perhaps a local user to eliminate ad authentication issues from the floor, especially if the services are running under a local user service account and trying to authenticate domain accounts).  I'll post a link to a thread I helped on for how to backdoor the sql installation.

It's a good exercise to go through - the very last point in time you ever want to have to learn to do this is on a downed production system!
