The Administrator account you are trying to log in with could be either 
a local administrator or a domain administrator. If the former, then you 
would have to log in locally. If the latter, and this would also be the 
case for badcat, you would have to give the domain user the right to log 
in on the local machine.

Check out the Windows groups on your workstation and make sure that 
Domain Admins is listed in the Administrators group and that Domain 
Users is listed in the Users group.
