I keep getting error messages saying Im not administrator etc

I keep getting error messages up saying I need to log in as administrator but I am, its only me who uses my computer.

I need to uninstall and fox a few problems on my computer, eg cant get my ad-aware to work, also when using spybot search & destroy it found some trojans etc via Fun Web, My Web etc and I cant remove them either! I keep getting an error message saying "Access is denied, cannot create file "C/windows/wininit-ini"
