Automatic Updates Won't Turn On
I am following the below process and get Error 1058 saying Could Not start
the Automatic Updates service on Local Computer. The service cannot be
started, either because its disabled or because it has no enabled devices
associated with it.

"The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows services is
not running:

Automatic Updates (allows the site to find, download and install
high-priority updates for your computer)
Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) (helps updates download more
quickly and without problems if the download process is interrupted)
Event Log (keeps a record of updating activities to help with
troubleshooting, if needed)
To make sure these services are running:
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type services.msc and then click OK.
3. In the list of services, double-click on Automatic Updates and then click
Properties.
4. In the Startup type list, select Automatic and click Apply.
5. Verify that the Service status is started, if the Service Status is
Stopped click on the Start Button.
6. In the list of services, double-click on Background Intelligent Transfer
Service (BITS) and then click Properties.
7. In the Startup type list, select Manual and click Apply.
8. Verify that the Service status is started, If the Service Status is
Stopped click on the Start Button.
9. In the list of services, double-click on Event Log and then click
Properties.
10. In the Startup type list, select Automatic and click Apply.
11. Verify that the Service status is started, If the Service Status is
Stopped click on the Start Button.
If this does not resolve the problem you may request help from one of the
following resources.

RE: Automatic Updates Won't Turn On
I am having the same problem.. I got my services open but when I get to step
3. "In the list of services, double-click on Automatic Updates and then click
Properties." I don't have anything listed as Automatic Updates but I do have
the BITS and it is set right, but my event log dont let me start or stop it.

I tried reinstalling the autoupdate service from some instructions I found
on a google search, but it didnt work either.. Any suggestions?

Re: Automatic Updates Won't Turn On
Hi Rachel, really you should have started your own posting but nonetheless, assuming that
this is Windows Xp and there has been a few postings -

Considerations: -

System may be infected with malware "Vundo"
http://www.microsoft.com/security/po...=Win32%2fVundo

Service does not start and displays "Error 1058"
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/241584

You cannot manually start the Automatic Updates service and you receive an "Error 1058"
error message on a computer that is running Windows XP or Windows XP Tablet PC Edition
2005
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896224

"Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service. Error 1058" error message when
you manually start the Remote Procedure Call service

unable to open windows update
I have the same problem and would certainly be interested in what must be done to fix it. . My update files and security files are jeopardized by a virus, I believe, (identified as Vista Anti-virus). This came from (blush) a nasty site. I have tried everything to open the automatic updates and something keeps interferring and disabling before it can start . I believe that if I can get these updates to open, the virus problem will be fixed also.
