You canclick start, run control userpasswords2 and see what the properties of your user account are.
You wil normally know if you are not an administrator as you will be nagged all the time for an account that is.

How does one determine if they have administrative privileges on their machine and if not how does one enable that?on their machine?

For those who would like a Shutdown sound, first, make sure that Fast
Startup is turned OFF. Control Panel, Power Options, Chose what the

Download the attached XML file: PlayShutdownSound.xml This
contains the XML code for a system task that will play a sound (one of
the built in Microsoft "ring" sounds that does not sound like a phone,
but more like
chimes) when the system event indicating a shutdown is taking place is
started. Know where you put it.

Then, open Control Panel, Administrative Tasks, Task Scheduler. Hit
ALT+A,M (Actions Menu, Import option) which will open up an Open
where you will navigate to find the XML file. Select that file then
activate the Open button. This will open the "Create Task" dialog.
Activate the OK button. This should create the task to play the
shutdown sound when your account that you were using to create this
task tells the computer to shutdown.

This has behaved differently on different machines, much of which is
determined by exactly what is triggered to happen at shutdown, and in
what order. On some it works perfectly, each and every time, on
others it seems to trigger but only part of the ring sound plays (but
you still get something), and on others still it doesn't work. The
majority have fallen into cases one and two.

All of the above presumes that the account you are logged in with at
the time you're doing all of the above has administrative privileges.
You cannot set up events with a standard account.
