    Why can't I change automatic updates settings in windows 8

    I have a problem with my Windows 8 OS. I purchased dell inspiron 15r special edition. It had a preloaded windows 8. I made a clean install of my pro edition. I have a problem, I am unable to change automatic updates settings in windows 8. I have a local account type. Also my account is in administrators group. Moreover automatic updates are also causing problems so I wanted to change this settings. After selecting my option regarding how the updates should be done(ie. whether manually or auto), When I click on OK button nothing seems to happens.
    Why can't I change automatic update settings despite being the admin?
