Please help!

I cannot change the date or time on my computer. Everytime I try it says that I have to be an administrator to do it, even though I am the administrator, in fact I am the only user on the system!

I have tried going into the user accounts but it won't let me click on manage another account type, change account type, or even change account name.

Any help would be much appreciated.

As a side issue which might also be related, I cannot install windows updates and it won't let me click on 'ok' when I try to change the setting to allow all users to install updates.

Thanks for looking and please help if you can!

Okay, don't panic.

Are you logged into the Vista hidden Admin account, or the first account you created ?

In XP the first account is an admin account; however, in Vista the first account you create claism to be an admin account.

But it isn't. Its a user account with user access.

So, look in the tutorials in these forums for the Hidden Admin account.

Create it, then change the clock.

Note that only the hidden admin can chage account types or names.
