Automatic Updates: Stopping
When I try to update I got this message:
"the site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows services is
not running"
BUT I did this: Click Start, and then click Run>Type services.msc and then
click OK>
In the list of services, double-click on Automatic Updates and then click
Properties>
In the Startup type list, select Automatic and click Apply>Verify that the
Service status is started, if the Service Status is Stopped click on the
Start Button.
THESE DIDNOT WORK. the button Start doesn't enable and the service staus
never starts.
maybe I've lost this: C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs what may
cause this big trouble.
HELP PLEASE. I'm from Brazil and my windows xp sp2 is in english.

Re: Automatic Updates: Stopping
Judging from similar posts here in the past month or so, the behavior may be
due to a Vundo-ZLOB-SDBot infection, all of which is protected by a rootkit.

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://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=22,
http://castlecops.com/forum67.html, 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.
