My main computer's processor died. While I was wrestling with that problem, I needed something to work with, so I yanked out an old Gateway I had in the closet. This runs Windows 2000 but it had never been updated, so I brought it up to SP4. Once I did, I noticed that the time and date were off, so I double clicked on it to bring up the box and fix it. Instead of bringing up what I expected, I got this little gray error box: "You do not have the proper priviliege level to change the System Time". Now ordinarily, no biggie, I changed the time from Control Panel. Problem is, it's affecting other minor system updates as well. I went into passwords (don't use one), there were two administrators, I removed one and rebooted. Unfortunately, this still didn't solve the problem. IS THERE a quick fix to roll back this annoying situation? I'd appreciate a head's up.
