Good afternoon Experts,

I have a computer running Windows XP Pro with SP2 running on it.  It is a member of our domain.  Lately, Microsoft Updates have been failing with  Error Code: 0x8007F004.  The research that I have conducted leads me to believe that this is a permissions issue (or lack thereof).

I have also tried repairing Windows on this box, but when i try to run the setup.exe file from my windows cd, I get the following error:  "You must be an administrator to run this application".  I have checked and I am a member of the 'Administrators" group.  I have also tried to run setup as the local administrator and as the domain administrator but both fail.  I'm thinking that the two are related.  Thanks in advance for your time and effort.
