I can't install SP1 on my computer.

The error message is I need
administrator rights. But
I am the only one using the computer
and already have administrator rights.

How can I get SP1 to install?

Then install SP2. Forget all previous updates. SP2 includes all prior
patches many of which are improved.

probably have tons more.
