Greetings. I recently inherited a laptop (Windows XP SP2) from a friend and was trying to change the Microsoft Update settings so that it only downloads (and not installs) the updates. However, whenever I try to change these settings I am unable to because they are grayed out. The firewall settings are also unable to be altered. I don't know why this is because I'm logged in as the only account (obviously an admin) and have never had this problem before. How can I change these security settings and change them from being all grayed out? Many thanks!
