    windows update

    Locked

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

    Administrators Only (-2146828218) 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.
