windows update

By tolitsss ·
hi good day!
When i attempt to use the Windows Update site, i receive an error
message:

Administrators Only (-214682821 To install items from Windows Update, you
must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators
group. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings
may also prevent you from completing this procedure.

i received this message even though i am already logged on as an
administrator or a member of the Administrators group.
any help would be great. tnx

Sounds like you may have a group policy preventing the windows update.
Go to the server, and the group policy
It will be listed under
Computer Configuration
Administrative Template
windows component
windows Update

double check that you are part of the administrators group.
Then go into the registry and do a search for
nowindowsupdate
change the values to 0 if they are set to 1. If they are on 0 then that is not the problem.

If those do not work, log with the administrator account and re-add your user account to the administrators group.
