Can't Enable Automatic Updates
Hi, I can't seem to enable automatic updates on my computer anymore. This is
happening ever since I had SecurIT installed on my computer (Protecting
package from my ISP) I cancelled the service and I had them remove it from my
computer. When I click on Automatic Updates under the Windows Security Center
all of the settings are grayed out and I can't change anything. Is there a
way I can reinstall this service without having to lose data stored on the
hard drive?

Thanks, Jay

Re: Can't Enable Automatic Updates
1. Check the Service Manager for "Automatic Update" service
Click Start, select Run and type: Services.msc
Press Enter
Locate the - "Automatic Update"
Make sure the service is not disabled and started.

2. If the service is disabled and cannot be started:

Go to START, Select RUN
Type: regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
Press Ok
