Problems with outlook 2003

by Annemarie06 / October 16, 2004 1:05 AM PDT

From time to time I get errors pop-up windows from Microsoft in Outlook 2003. It suggest that I update and offers me the access to the download. I have Windows XP, so I click on the proper site. After some search, I am finally being told that because I don't have Administrative privilege I cannot download the update.
Can someone tells me what is going on, please?

Just out of interest: what's the exact error message, and what exactly are you downloading? It might be very legitimate, of course, but it's good to have it checked here maybe.

And the big question: are you being logged on Administrator? Or did the administrator make a user account for you with less capabilities? That makes sense in certain situations.

The exact message says very simply that because I don't have the administrative privileges I am not authorized to download the update.
I am the sole user of that particular computer. I am on a network with one of my employee, but my computer is acting as the server.
How do I sign as the administrator would be my question? I was named as the user but to change as the Administrator, I am totally null.
Thanks for your response.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
