I cant change the account type into normal, it says that i need to set an admin before , I try to set and admin but nothing changes.

 

I would like for example to upgrade my windows live messenger, it says i need to isntall 2updates , In the guest account (Which is set to Admin, I see no updates) , When i go to normal account i see available updates, I press on update, but i get an "error" Message saying i need administrator permission.
