Uh, no. . . The one thing that is broken by design in Windows is the RBAC user permission model.

As root on an *IX box you can override permissions and fix things, leaving them as they are.

As Administrator on a Windows system there are things you don't own and can't change. You can take ownership, there by FKing the whole system up to change one tiny thing, but that's a clusterfk if you ever attempt it.
