    This is a new one on me. When I go to Win Update as I do at least once a
    week without any problems. I now get a message saying "Administrators only"
    and the following advice.
    (I am running xp pro)
    "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.

    Note If you are running a Windows 2000 (except DataCenter), Windows XP, or
    Windows Server 2003 operating system, you can run the local administrator
    account on your computer without having to log off and then log on again.

    To run as the local administrator in Windows XP or Windows Server 2003:

    Click Start, and then click All Programs (or right-click Windows Update if
    it is available).

    Right-click Windows Update.

    Click Run as on the menu that appears.

    Do one of the following:

    Enter the password for the administrator.

    Enter the user name, domain name, and password of a different user account
    that has administrative permissions on this computer."


    Ok I have done all that and I still cant get any further. I have even tride
    a system rollback and still no luck.

    Can anyone help please.
