Windows update problems

  astra46 20:48 09 Feb 2004

I get the message administrators only.

I have attempted to change my password in the control panel, and followed the instructions in the troubleshooting guide in microsoft.

I thought that i would get a message when a new update is available, i do not.

Any ideas. Ive never had any problems before.

When do you get the message "administrators only"? Is that the exact error message (if not, please post it)? Which version of Windows - XP I assume?

This is whats displayed, not an error message as such:-

i Administrators only

To install items from windows update you must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure.
