Windows update options are greyed out for admin account


  • I am running windows 7 home premium 32 bit as administrator.  In the past my option for Windows updates was "Instal Updates Immediately (recommended).  I've recently notice that now the option has be changed to "Check for Update but let me choose...".  This is greyed out in the Administrator account, but is available in the Guest Account.  I have tried turning on the network administrator active:yes, and it is greyed out for that account as well.  The Windows Update services and BITS are enabled and active.  Any help is appreciated.

    PS. Even though I'm logged on as the administrator, I get the message "Some settings are managed by your system administrator"  but this is a stand alone system.
