    reset proxy problem

    under windows vista ulitmate i configured a proxy manually via the netsh
    winhttp set proxy command and all was working fine through my proxy. However
    now that I have removed the proxy server I'm unable to go back to direct
    settings via the netsh winhttp reset proxy command. Everytime I execute the
    command I get an access denied(5) error.
    Any usefull hints to solve this problem? as this is now preventing me from
    obtaining any furhter windows updates.

    Error 5 is permission issue. Try to open the cmd run as administrator.

    Robert, I"m running the command as the administrator on this machine.
    so not sure what else I can do here.
