    The account you are logged in with is set up as LIMITED instead of
    ADMINISTRATOR.

    You can check this by going to START, CONTROL PANEL, USER ACCOUNTS.
    All the user accounts will show up here and show whether it is an admin
    account or Limited user account.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    Make sure your account is a Computer Administrator or you are a member of the Administrators Group. If you are a restricted user or a member of a different user group, you will not be able to access Windows Update (unless you are a member of a Domain and the Domain Administrator has given you Windows Update Permission)
