My problem is that my computer automatically downloads updates and it has happened more than twice already that these updates need to restart the computer and when im not around the thing restarts by itself closing whatever programs i have running..
I went to the Automatic Updates tab under System Properties to modify my settings but everything is grayed out.
I then clicked on the help button to get more info about it and this is what it says:
-My Automatic Updates options are grayed out?
If your computer is part of a network, your network administrator might have configured your Automatic Updates options for you. Network administrators often need to implement systemwide changes to help make sure that the network operates smoothly and more securely whenever changes, such as updates, are applied. Your options might also be grayed out if you are not an administrator for your computer. Only administrators can add or remove programs, including updates.
Well, now 2 things, first, i'm the only user on my pc, ths i have only one account and im sure it has administrator privileges, second, i'm in fact part of a network, but it is only 2 computers, my pc and a mac. I guess the options being grayed out have something to do with the network part. Now, who is the network administrator then ?, where can i find that account? I've looked i both computers and have found nothing related to a network administrator.
Any ideas on what can i do, it is just annoying that everytime there's an important update the machine will reboot by itself without me being able to do anything about it.
Btw, i'm running Windows Xp Pro sp2.
Thanks in advance.
