  • Question

  • Having some trouble with a windows 8 platform where as I'm logged in as the system admin, I cannot change the settings for automatic windows updates within control panel.  I have changed the profile of the main user settings, by applying a password (it wasn't password protected before) and still no progress with allowing the update setting to be changed to the recommended settings; a notification box appears saying that I do not have permission to change the setting?

    Any relevant help will be greatly appreciated this, as Windows Defender can also not be turned on due to the glitch in the system admin access.

  • Hello,

    I'd ask in the Windows 8 forum on Microsoft Community.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.
