Windows Update doesn't recognize I'm an Administrator
Posted on 2004-04-19
I'm logged on as "Administrator". Computer name is "RMC-5".
When I try to run Windows Update, I get the following message:
"You may not have the necessary permissions to use all the features
of the program you are about to run."
The system then suggests I should run the program as an administrator,
and gives me the option of running it as "Administrator\RMC-5", if only
I can supply the necessary password.
If I enter the password I used when logging on, everything seems to
run fine. However, I'd like to avoid having to go through this extra
step whenever I run Windows Update. Can anyone tell me why the
system doesn't recognize that I'm already logged on as an administrator,
and how to fix it?
