I have specifically avoided creating an account named root. Since Ubuntu which we are now using uses a sudo environment, seems a wise decision way back when.

Still, I do not think that alone is your source of trouble.

Did you get a copy of ifmember.exe and run it with the /list option to see which local and domain groups you are a member of? What did it return? Are you a member of the local Administrators group or 
not? (Sounds like not.)
