Windows updates don't install & permission issues, Help!

Hello All,

Where to start? Several weeks ago I installed a windows update & then my Bullguard firewall wouldn't start. I got remote assistance from Bullguard & they succesfully restarted my firewall.

Since then I have permissions issues, I have tried changing my status from admin to standard but the standard option is greyed out. I have tried setting a new user account but that also will not let me apply any changes without a password which I don't have. Also when I go to All Programs this is empty?

My other problem is my windows security updates faill to install ( error 8000ffff) I have looked at different solutions online & used microsoft fix it but all to no avail. I have 19 updates to install but they constantly come back with the same error.

I am using an Acer Aspire 5336 64 bit on Windows 7.

Thank you in advance

Dave.
