Automatic Updates
Hi,
I'm using Windows XP SP2. My automatic update keeps disabling itself. Have
tried the settings using Run - services.msc - automatic updates to enable it.
It can be enabled but I can't start it. Whenever I click on start, automatic
updates will disable itself and give this message "Could not start the
Automatic Updates service on Local Computer" Error Code: 1058.

I've also tried changing the Background Intelligent Transfer and Event Log
settings to Manual. They can start but this still does not enable Automatic
Updates. Please HELP!!!

Thanks!

Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software

Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.

When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
(http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use.
It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware with
assistance from an expert. **Post your log to

http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30, or other appropriate forums for review
by an expert in such matters, not here.**

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
