Hit your start button and begin typing "Give a" and you will see the option "Give administrative rights to a domain user".
Select this option and ensure your current user is listed there as administrator, if not add them. This should solve your problem.

You need to give your user additional privileges through the Report Manager.  So first open it up the way you're currently doing (with IE as admin), then follow the steps in the documentation: Grant User Access to a Report Server (Report Manager)

If you're the admin the easiest option is to give yourself the System Administrator system role and Content Manager on the root folder.
