Check if the current user is administrator

using System.Security.Principal;

public static bool IsAdministrator()
    using (WindowsIdentity identity = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent())
        WindowsPrincipal principal = new WindowsPrincipal(identity);
        return principal.IsInRole(WindowsBuiltInRole.Administrator);

You can also call into the Windows API to do this:

[DllImport("shell32.dll", SetLastError=true)]
[return: MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.Bool)]
static extern bool IsUserAnAdmin();

which more generically tells you whether user is running under elevated rights.

return new WindowsPrincipal(WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent())
