Which proves how essential it is that you disclose your OS and version
when you are reporting problems and also why it is generally better not
to try to report your problems as Me too! posts in ancient threads. ; }
Are you the OP? Special_K (Aug. 2004 with XPsp2 behind a proxy server)
Otherwise perhaps you have some earlier OS?

Someone using that account who knows what they are doing. ; }
One possibility is that you have excessive security implemented
and don't know how to turn it off so you can maintain your OS.
For a simple workaround try doing a safe mode boot.
That should prevent the wuauserv service from starting
(in which case you won't need to stop it <w>) and prevent
other (third-party security) programs from starting too.
There is still the possibility that such applications could have modified
permissions so that you will still be blocked from making changes even
when they are inactive but without any other details about your symptoms
try doing it that way first.
