Windows XP Update Setup Error
Hi all.
When I try to install the latest critical update, I get the Setup Error: You
do not have permission to update Windows XP. Please contact your system
administrator.

I never had problems updating until now. I am the administrator and I have
administrator rights.
What rights are needed to install the update?
Thanks in advance, Ronald.

Re: Windows XP Update Setup Error
The user rights that are required by Update.exe
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888791

The above KB article describes how to determine IF file and registry
permissions are preventing an update from installing.
You'll need to check one of the installation logs of a failed update.
They are located in the WINDOWS directory [folder] and are in this
format: KBxxxxxx.log
The numbers will be of that specific update, as in KB927898, for example.

If you can't determine specifically where this issue is occurring you
can reset file and registry Permissions to their Default state:

Solving setup errors by using the SubInACL tool to repair file and
registry permissions
