    I’m trying to change the settings on automatic updates to download and
    install, the settings screen will not allow me to change the existing
    settings. Says it must be done by a system administrator. The machine is not
    on a domain

    I have administrator rights, but I’m not logged on as the administrator.

    How can I change this and or how do I log on as the administrator.

    Thanks

    The question you asked is self explanatory. Yes, you must be logged i
    as an administrator

    Yes, I'm logged as an administrator, but not "THE ADMINISTRATOR" Logging in
    now I have all rights.
