Click Start button, type gpedit.msc and press enter.


Navigate to Computer Configuration-> Administrative Templates -> Windows Component -> Windows Update. Make sure the state of each setting is "Not Configured".


Navigate to Computer Configuration-> Administrative Templates-> System-> Internet Communication Management-> Internet Communication settings. Make sure the state of “Turn off access to all Windows Update features” is "Not Configured".

Try using the hidden administrator account seeing as you are the only user.

To activate this account you'll need to run a command prompt with elevated privileges thus:

Start/cmd/right-click cmd/run as administrator then type: net user administrator /active:yes

To hide this account you need to type: net user administrator /active:no

Just remember that your computer is at a higher risk of infection if you use this account.

Yes. It will give you access to the Administrator Account that runs with full privileges.

After you run the command line you just restart your computer, and then you'll see two account buttons on your desktop: one will be for your user account and the other will be for the "real" administrator account.
