You will need administrator rights over the remote system that you wish to change.

How to add administrator rights over remote system Thank u – chaithu Sep 19 '09 at 11:51
You're going to need admin rights over the target PC to add admin rights, which you wouldn't need if you had them already. You either need physical access to the PC when an administrator is logged in to forge a set of admin credentials for yourself (or just do what you wanted to do there and then), or if the target PC is part of a domain you could get domain administrator access then you'd be able to remote administer the PC. However, I suspect your quest ends here. – Szetak Sep 19 '09 at 16:50
