Cant et Windows Update to run on 8.1

    Question

  • On 8.1, Windows Update is set to never run. The account I am signed in under is set to administrative, but still wont let me change it. It says can only be changed by admin account. I have run full AVG and MacAfee anti virus and still no change. even set up another account as admin and same issue. Got any ideas????

  • Hello,

    I'd ask in the Windows Update forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    Once there, click on Participate near the top of the screen, and select 'Ask a Question' or 'Start a Discussion'
