    On my daughters laptop she is listed as admin under her name.
    Update was just installed, I thought it was 1709 but it was 1703.
    I went to run mrt and a box comes up saying no admin rights contact administrator.
    Any help appreciated

    Looks like your user account is standard user account which has permission to do anything that does not involve system wide changes.
    Administrator accounts should be used only to install or modify software and to change system settings.

    Sorry, I don't follow, mrt is Microsoft removal tool, on my computer I have same rights and it runs, also I don't know why even at her level she cannot run a tool from Microsoft to remove malicious software.

    it scans and accesses important system files so will always be locked to a standard user :)
