I'm not able to do updates because I'm not a member of the Trusted Installer Group on my WIN7 box.

How can I add myself?

Thanks!

Well... Run Internet Explorer as Administrator and it should bypass that requirement (if you install updates from Windows Updates website).  The the way I do my updates on my Windows 7 x64.

If you're careful enough you can disable UAC: then you won't have to worry about TI group. But I've never heard about being a member of TI group to install updates.
