zlim Posted June 15, 2005 Share Posted June 15, 2005 On a 2K computer, I'm the only user and have administrative rights. I go to Windows update (one of the few times that I let IE connect), I disable filtering in AdMuncher because that creates a problem. I have ActiveX turned off and I have prompts on scripting. When I finally get thru to the page, I see a page that I must be logged in as an administrator. (I am so how come the computer doesn't know this?) I then went to Users icon in Control panel. Administrators is highlighted and my username "a2Kuser" is listed as an administrator but I can't move to highlight it. Also, all the boxes are grayed out.I tried another tactic by right-clicking Windows Update, selecting properties and then Run as a different user. I logged in with the administrator account and was able to download the updates.If any one can figure out what I need to do to straighten out my "2Kuser" account, please share.
