error number?

by Churdoo In reply to Microsoft Update

What's the error number? Is this workstation part of a domain?

Check the values of applicable Group Policy Objects for Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / User Rights Assignment / "Managing Auditing and Security Log" and "Backup Files and Directories"

Make sure that the user that you're running WindowsUpdate as, has rights per those two settings.
