Can't Windows updates Automaticlly
Hi, I had SecurIt (Spyware, Virus & Firewall from my ISP) installed on my
computer. I cancelled it a while back and I had the program removed. Since
then I haven't been receiving my windows/Microsoft updates automatically; I
have to manually search for them once in a while in order to keep my system
update. I have automatic updates setup turned on under the security settings.
I assume something is wrong with my registry but I don't know what to do to
fix
it. Please help! Thanks Jay

Re: Can't Windows updates Automaticlly
Windows version?

And what anti-virus and anti-spyware application(s) do you have installed
now?

Is the Windows Firewall enabled or have you installed another third-party
firewall?
