Im assuming by the error stated above, that this user may not have Admin rights to update the server. Is this true?
LBCAuthor Commented:
no admin rights given to any users
That would mean you're part of a larger organization. Contact your admin or the person from whom you acquired computer who either can update the definitions for you or give you admin rights so you can do it your self.
