I just got mine this week and I'm having problems loading some of the Windows live updates. It says "this user does not have authorization for these updates" but I am the administrator. Anyone else have this problem or know what I should do? Thanks.

try this to put the administrator back on the Welcome screen:

Show the “administrator” at the login screen on Vista

This one is really easy - miss having the administrator on the Welcome screen? You can really easily put it back on there with a command from Run.

1. Go to Start, and in the Search box type in cmd.
2. Right click the Command Prompt at the top of the Start menu and select “Run as administrator”.
3. At the command prompt, type in net user administrator /active:yes then press Enter.
4. Log off and you should see the administrator sitting there on your Welcome login screen.
