Firstly, "System Settings" is in Options>Advanced Options>System Settings.
You're "It appears you do not have administrator or Power User Privilege" message, should not impact, essentially this is saying that your alteryx designer license is only available for yourself as a logged in user and not others if they were to use the same machine.
As for the "Unable to connect to the controller XXXX(Computer Name). Please consult the Alteryx Scheduler Faqs." message:
My thoughts are that it is first best to check the controller you are using by going to Options>Schedule Workflow and see what controllers you have listed. If this appears to be the correct IP/name for your machine and you are still having problems then it may be worth choosing the "add controller" option and add the Machine Name and Controller token (this is available from system setting on the controller machine). See if this connects to the controller no problem and if so then perhaps any other workflows that are using the previous controller will also need to be moved. If this doesnt connect to the controller then you may need to check with IT admin as to whether the controller machine has changed IP / name.
Let me know how you get on with this and if you have no luck we can look in to it further.
I most often see this because the Alteryx Service is not running, and luckily it is usually an easy fix. Per this article, "launch taskmgr.exe, select the Processes or Details tab (windows 7 and 8, respectively), and select Show processes from all users if the option is available. If the Server is running correctly, you should see the primary Server process called AlteryxService.exe running". If it is showing but not running, right click to start the service.
