    Windows update disabled


    Windows 8 problem: I can no longer control my windows update settings because my computer has decided that I'm not an administrator and it will not let me change any of my user account settings (to administrator)!! I can only select "standard" user account settings, as the "change account settings" option greys out when I select "administrator".

    I used to be able to update Windows 8 anytime I liked, and this is a recent change (within the last month).
    Suggestions?
