    Windows 2000 updates

    I have added a laptop to the network (-windows 2000 server) which has windows 2000 operating system. The user who will be using this laptop has got "power users" permissions, when i try to do windows updates it says you have to log in as administrator to do windows updates, the same message comes up when i try to add/remove programs.

    The funny thing is that the same user with the same permission levels and the same operating system on her desktop PC is able to do windows updates and add or remove programs.

    Does anyone know why is this?

    Regards,

    Skender

    On the problem computer, try to access Windowsupdate website from APPWIZ.CPL > Add New Programs > Windows Update.

    If access will be denied, check Registry for "NoWindowsUpdate" dword in
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionPoliciesExplorer
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersionPoliciesExplorer

    This 0xC80001FE. - Google Search has many links concerning your error code. This thread Update error: 0xC80001FE - MS-OS - Gateway to Microsoft Newsgroups has a suggested workaround. If it does not work there may be others.

    Re: Windows 2000 updates

    I have installed LAra Soft Ad_Aware Anti spyware and removed 38 unwanted programs, files, restarted the PC and now i am able to do windows updates, but i cannot do office updates or Cumulative Security update for Outlook Express 6 SR1. Even though i have downloaded and installed this update it keeps coming up all the time.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Have a look at the thread starting with <post:=383,442>post 383,442</post:>. It refers to XP but should be applicable to win2k also.
