Change settings need to be system administrator

Posted: 03-03-2009, 03:09 AM
I’m trying to change the settings on automatic updates to download and
install, the settings screen will not allow me to change the existing
settings. Says it must be done by a system administrator. The machine is not
on a domain

I have administrator rights, but I’m not logged on as the administrator.

How can I change this and or how do I log on as the administrator.

Thanks

The question you asked is self explanatory. Yes, you must be logged i
as an administrator

Yes, I'm logged as an administrator, but not "THE ADMINISTRATOR" Logging in
now I have all rights.

that you can log on to it with full rights
