He needs to know the password to an administrator account to do this.

I don't know how he knows your password, or the password to *another*
Administrator account. But I can tell you that you *cannot* logon as a
guest (or other limited user account) and escalate or grant yourself
privileges to administrator level, only administrators can do this. Is
this on a domain or on a stand alone machine? If it's a stand alone my
guess is that the built-in administrator account is unprotected, or it
was hacked.

Because the Guest account doesn't have permission to do these things!

Log on with an administrator account! If you are trying to do this from
the Guest account and if you are asking for a workaround to the
restrictions imposed on the Guest account I can only surmise that you do
not have permission to do these changes on your machine and that you are
trying to circumvent restrictions imposed on you by your IT department,
ask your boss to hack the account for you...
