Your aministrator password may be just a blank i.e. just press enter or it may set to admin.

If not:

click here

and once you have got the password right, follow my steps again.

Good luck ;-)

Tried to get windows update and got a message....'Your current security settings prohibit running active x controls on this page,As a result the page may not be displayed properly'....Any help?...

Control Panel> Internet Options "Security" Then click "Custom" Then Reset to "Medium" Then Click "Reset". Try the steps again... if it still doesn't work try, Medium-Low. Hope that this works out! ;-)
